Windows 7 Explorer Thumbnails slow to load

#1
Hi Everyone :)

Each time I open a folder that contains images or videos the thumbnail preview reloads the cache even if I haven't added any additional images or videos? Its very slow on the video.

Please help :)

I found the problem solved after doing the following:
* open windows start menu
* type cmd and wait for cmd.exe to appear listed under the title Programs:
* right click on cmd.exe and choose "Run as administrator"
* a command prompt opens, then type the following: SFC.EXE /SCANNOW
* hit enter and wait for Windows to check and repair its system files
Note: although Windows reported no violations were found in my system, I've found that Explorer now loads thumbnails almost instantly :)
