Try deleting the THUMBS.DB file in the picture directory then refreshing...

Strangely there is no thumb in there. I had not noticed that until now. Anyone know where to get it? I have show hidden folders on.

When a thumb.db file is non-existent windows should create a new one. To find and remove the thumbs.db files you may find this link useful:

This link may also prove useful:

Let us know if that helps, also read the second link carefully as it explains things pretty well.
