    Windows is not showing the thumbnails of programs

    I am a windows 7 user. My windows was working absolutely fine till last week but now it is not showing the thumbnails of programs. Instead, it shows the default icon for pictures like jpg,bmps etc. Do you have any idea about this problem? Do you know,how to solve this?

    Actually windows always keeps a copy of your program and other data. When you press on their thumbnail, it uses the same copy to open them as quick as possible. It is very similar to the working of cache which is employed in web browsers most often. To solve your issue, you will have to clear the thumbnail database. After that system will create the same again and your problem will be resolved. To clear the thumbnail cache, you can use the disk cleanup. For the same type "cleaning" in the search box and hit enter. Now select the system drive letter from the drop-down. Now uncheck all the entries except thumbnails.After that click on "Ok" and then on "Delete" to delete all the entries.
