Windows 7: Broken Explorer Thumbnails

64-bit Windows 10 Pro

Since the images in your screenshot are system files, you might see if running a sfc /scannow command may further help.

Hey Brink, I didn't drop the case.
I would like to thank you for your help. I tried everything possible, but nothing really worked.

After few months in waiting and unsuccessful tries of tens of different options I did a repair: Repair Install

This did fix my issues and kept all my files in tact. My C was 24.7 GB free before and after the repair.

Thanks again Brink!
