Windows 7: Thumbnails aren't working for GIF and video files

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Thumbnails aren't working for GIF and video files

Multiple thumbnails have randomly stopped working on my computer and I've tried every method in trying to fix it i.e. resetting thumbnail cache and using the folder options to display file icon on thumbnails.

Any other options to try and fix this? It's quite annoying.
