Since a bit more than a week, suddenly in Windows 10 Explorer preview, pdf's don't show up anymore.

What can I do to get them displayed again?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Thank you ever so much, Anand! The repair worked and my previews are now working again.

Thank you so much! Now, if I can only get my Windows 10 to open PDFs with my Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro, I'll really be happy; But for now, preview works and I am thrilled! Thanks again.
