Windows 7: Library thumbnails broken

Library thumbnails broken

I have a problem with my Windows 7 libraries (music,photos)

Now the thumbnails have become smaller and now only fill 1/4 of the icon area regardless moving the size slider (in music with album view)



The thumbnails lost their 3D stacked effect, now are smaller, but the shadow of them in 3D is still there (in music with artist view and photo with month view)



In folder view all is fine in both music and photos with or without custom icon.



Thanks.

For many a reasons thumbnail previews or icon previews may be damaged. That's not a big deal, and easy to fix anytime
