Do you run any programs like ccleaner, or any other kind of system cleaning program. They tend to remove thumbnail caches.

Uncheck the box that says Thumbnail Cache and this should resolve your issue

There's a typo in your post, it should be;

sfc /scannow

Of course, I have never made a typo...what's all that noise, is someone laughing?

I began using computers back in the DOS days and always used "/" as a switch, so it is second nature for me. I never tried using anything else, thus, my thought you made a typo.
