    There is no solution to this problem at present. "Automatic Maintenance" is responsible for the thumbnails deletion in windows 8.1 which runs every day automatically. at present you can only customize its settings to change the hour time but not day, month or year or even you can't disable it, it will give you tension every day.

    I think MS should either exclude the thumbnails deletion from this automatic maintenance or option to customize settings to days, month or year.

    It's a fat bug!

    Even if you disable the Automatic Maintenance the thumbnails have to be rebuilt after every system start!

    The real question is: Why run 8.x on a computer that can't even handle extracting some icons. Back to XP you should go and hold on to it.

    Setting a time like 3am so your PC will not be on makes zero difference as it simply runs it the next time PC starts as it missed it at 3am.

    Also telling peeps to use dinosaur Fisher Price XP due to them having not enough hardware power is not any help. :confused:

    The thumbs caching is one of great feature like SuperFetch etc of modern OS's from Vista onwards and its a PIA to let all my Albums covers and Movie/TV Show covers redraw nearly every day and this is on a 5GHZ CPU (Intel 2700k) and 16GB Memory and an SSD) < may not have enough power. :rolleyes:

    Sorry, but I never sought the solution for the subject problem but it was just an added advantage for me. I have been using kaspersky internet security since vista era. could not installed kis for 2-3 months because of its compatibility problem but when compatible build released I installed it and side effect is good for me.:rolleyes:

    sorry for late update. I should update with my change results.
    now this solution is not working. each day cacheing gets refreshed. hope this must be customizable in the coming updates by MS.

    Time will tell, I have gone longer in Win 8/8.1 without it cleaning even though its supposed to catch up on maintenance at next reboot if missed it does seem a hit and a miss.

    I would not have any faith in MS fixing a major issue like this as they have not done so for every ballsup from Win 7 till now.

    Run it manually and see if its remains.

    Why installing an internet security? Or even an antivirus on windows 8.1?
    Windows defender do the job, perfectly.
