Windows 7: Win7 Thumbnails blank/missing/white. Help?

Win7 Thumbnails blank/missing/white. Help?

I've encountered a problem two months ago.

My files' thumbnails suddenly went white or blank. I tried to clear the thumbnail cache and did a disk cleanup, went into Folder and search options, unchecked the box. Nothing still happens. Help?

Here is how it looks like:

*The black rectangles are the files' names. They are not the part of the problem
*On top of the black rectangles are the thumbnail previews. They're blank.
It would be a pleasure if someone could help me

This happens when I set the size of the icons to Extra Large Icons or Large Icons
