Windows 7: Random folder thumbnails problem

03 Oct 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Random folder thumbnails problem

Here's the deal: I have 3 hard disks.
C- Programs and Windows
E- Games
F- Music
Disk F has a lot of organized music foders and all have thumbnails. When I create a folder on my desktop or anywhere else, it automatically gets a random image from disk F, from some of the folder thumbnails. Or some already created folders have random images, for example my WinRar folder has a Metallica thumbnail. Sometimes it won't get it when I create the folder, it gets it when I put something in it. Sometimes when I refresh. Sometimes when I delete something from the folder. Help.
