I have read many questions here (such as Refresh Icon Cache Without Rebooting), tried methods like ie4uinit.exe -ClearIconCache, deleting all Thumbs.db hidden files, deleting the C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\IconCache.db file, rebooting, etc. but this problems always comes back:

  • When I browse my photos folders, everything is ok, but after a few folder navigation, I get the following display

Actually you can change the default Program for opening pictures. Because that Program deals with icons of photos.

If you are using Windows Photo Viewer , Delete and Install it again.or Just Install it again.

If That doesn't help there must be another built-in photo-viewer in Windows-7. just change default Programs in

Control Panel\Programs\Default Programs\Set Default Programs

I think that must help.
