no thumbnails in CP>personalization/desktopbackground

hey guys, im new here, was wondering if anyone knew about my situation, i am not able to set a desktop background from Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization\Desktop Background. as for the theme, i can select a theme, only once i delete the trancoded image file, i can however right click a pic and set as desktop background, but i cant size it like this... also in person/desktopbg all the picture there are all invisible thumbs, no img previews, i can onlyu select solid colors, ive searched google for hour on end, but came up with no fix what so ever, ill attach screen shots of what im trying to explain if that would help...

what ive tried:
- delete the transcoded img file
- restore pc
- uninstal last updates
- reinstal old and new updates
- regedit
- sfc /scannow
- chkdsk /r /f
- recheck windows experience index
- theres probably a few more just done so much i dont remember
