Windows 7: Picture Library Not Showing Pictures

Picture Library Not Showing Pictures

Not sure how to explain this but when I used to open my picture library I would be able to see my pictures. Even in the folders I would be able to see what was in them. Now I just have the same generic image. I have attached pics so maybe I can get some help here

I am not sure if it is related to my Carbonite Backup or not, somehow I don't think so because it just happened recently.

I really would like to get it fixed & was wondering if it might be a system files issue. I have Windows 7 home premium 32 bit. Please let me know if there is any other infor I need to post here . . Thanks much, JoLyn

Hello JoLynW, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It appears that your thumbnail previews are disabled. Check each option in the tutorial below to see if one them may be able to enable them again for you.
