Windows updates seem to play havoc with settings...If I am interpreting your question properly could you do some checking...
First if haven't customized "organize in windows explorer" reset to defaults and check preview icons again...see screen shot

*******************************************
check status of system restore and manually attempt to create restore point..see screen shot and paths to get there at top of shot.

If you change the view to large icons and when in folder options make sure the "display file icon on thumb nails" is checked see the above snip posted by the comment above.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

restore defaults if you have not customized folder "view" settings under "organize"
If you have customized "view" under "organize" make note of them and then "Restore Defaults" first, then reset  customizations.

system restore will restore your "machine state" to a previous point in time.  It really doesn't have much to do with "not my past"
