Windows 7: Png thumbnails dont appear correctly

Png thumbnails dont appear correctly

Since some time my png thumbnails doesn´t appear in explorer. All the other image file types are fine.
I tried changing the default program to open png files but it remains the same.

I tried rebuild icon cache without success.
What can be the problem?

Try deleting the current thumbnail cache and let it rebuild. Make a system restore point before as a precaution.

Thumbnail Cache - Clear and Reset

You can also disable and reenable

Thumbnail Cache - Enable or Disable

What program are png's associated with now? You can also try associating them with another program or windows own, and see if the problem continues.
