    Windows 8 shows error message while opening picture library

    Every time I make an attempt to open picture library in my PC upgraded to Windows 8, I keep getting the error message “Pictures.library-ms is no longer working. This library can be safely deleted from your computer. Folders that have been included will not be affected”. It also prevents me from taking pictures using webcam. How can I get rid of this error?

    As a first step, launch Windows Explorer on your system. Navigate through the files available over there and locate the ‘Picture library’ file. Once you find that file, right click on it. Then, choose ‘Delete’ option from the pop-up menu and click ‘Yes’ option for confirmation. Get into the navigation pane afterwards and look for ‘libraries’ option. Right click on that option and wait until a menu pop up on the screen. Click the ‘Restore default libraries’ option from that menu and try to open the picture library again.

    Hi Friend,

    You have receiving this error,
    Because of the library-ms registry files are corrupted,
    There is normally cause by Virus are affected in picture folder of library.

    So, you can need to restore default libraries.

    First you can scan the system using Antivirus.

    Then you can try to delete
    Pictures folder from it,
    >> Open Computer,
    >> Look at the Left-side for "libraries" Folder
    >> there are music and "Pictures" folder in it.
    >> first of all try to delete it
    >> If deleted Restart PC.

    >> Then, Right Clink on libraries,
    >> And Select "Restore Default Libraries"
    >> Then Restart PC.

    I hope you will understood.

    All the Best.
