    You have to show hidden files and system files. Then you should see them
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    1. Go to Run in the startmenu
    2. Type gpedit.msc
    3. Click OK and the Group Policy will open
    4. Go to User Configuration/Administrative Template/Windows Components/Windows Explorer
    5. Scroll down to the bottom of the long list of stuff that now shows up in the menu on the right. Double-Click on Turn off caching of thumbnail pictures.
    6. Click on Enable then Apply, Ok. And now you no longer have this annoying problem.

    1. Click on "CONTROL PANEL" from the Start Menu.
    2. Click on "FOLDER OPTIONS" in the Control Panel.
    3. Click the view tab
    4. Tick the "DO NOT CACHE THUMBNAILS" box and then click apply


    Thumbnail cache sounds like what it is. It caches your thumbnails for when you may have your folder view on thumbnails, you can see pictures, media, and other icons easily. It can crash explorer if you have to many thumbnails to display and I think it's a good idea to turn it off and use "List" view instead.

    If you&#39;re on XP Home it won&#39;t work
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think &quot;Ok, this is the limit&quot;.

    That&#39;s because XP Home uses a "Local" Security Policy.
