Thumbnails and folders disappearing W7 - why?

Hi, my thumbnails keep disappearing in W7, I have a large collection of pictures which I cant preview, on first look they are there then after a while the folder takes an age to load ( green bar at top of window very slow) and most of the TN's have gone, the description is still there, I've noticed it getting worse and worse as I add more pictures, does anyone have a solution? Thanks

Loading thumbnails takes a fair amount of CPU time and RAM. If you load as "List" do they all load and show?

Thanks: - it still slows to a halt when trying to load the folder - I've set it to "never show thumbs" and its fine but obviously I cant see a preview which is a bit annoying - I'd heard it was something to do with W7 cant cope with more than a certain number of thumbnails?
