Ok what was the result of the SFC /SCANNOW file check. Can you post a screenshot of what the icons look like at present. Also please check "Always show icons, never thumbnails is unchecked under folder options/view. You could also try resetting to default aw-sell also under the view tab

Even if the SFC Scan did not find any integrity violations, it would be helpful if you could post the CBS.LOG

Follow Option Three here: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to place the log on your desktop, then zip the file and post it in your next reply.

So, your CBS log didn't show any abnormalities. When you checked System restore did you have the "Show more restore points" checked? its the little check box in the lower left corner.

Did you install or uninstall anything before you noticed "It suddenly happened"?

Win7 doesn't want to generate any thumbnails-d.jpg
well I had installed SageThumbs..a week before.so I don't think it's that..plus, SageThumbs is for image files but all my thumbs are missing , also I tried to disable it to check.didn't help...I don't exactly remember how this happened..I opened something..it was uTorrent or NOD32 ,don't exactly remember, and I return to the desktop see this..but this is all normal..I do this everyday..
now if I open DiskCleanup..Thumbnails are only 3.29KB...so Windows doesn't generate them..and also SageThumbs cache is also 1.5MB whereas it was ~14MB before the problem occured

thanx
