Try this....

1) Disable and re-enable thumbnails in the File Folders options - Windows Explorer > Organize > Folders Options > View >

Check Always show icons, never thumbnails > Apply

Uncheck Always show icons, never thumbnails > OK

2) Flush the thumbnail cache - My Computer > right-click drive C > Properties > Disk Cleanup >
Check thumbnails > Ok

3) reboot the computer
