    Windows Explorer not responding while loading thumbnails on Windows 7

    While I was trying to open folder having thumnails from C drive on my laptop running on Windows 7, I found the Windows Explorer has stopped working. I can’t find any issues with the system while opening the same folder without thumbnails. Why is it so and how can I avoid this?

    Dear Friend!!
    This can be a virus threat as well as corrupt windows problem.
    Try to run a boot scan while starting your computer and keep the automatic updates ON.
    This problem genrally occurs when the processor is being given heavy tasks or due to TROJAN Virus.(a malware, really dangerous).

    Hello friend...

    Windows 7 support the thumbnails but your computer may be virus effective so it create a problem and not loading the thumbnails. you need to download and install the another antivirus then scan the computer. if any virus it removed it..

    you also used the microsoft essential antivirus. it is free available from the genuine windows 1..

    All the Best!!
