Uninstalled sagethumbs and my tiles are back. Anyone have an alternative to view PSD thumbs that work with Metro UI?

Excuse me..
hey there is some weird problem on my PC.
i'm using windows 8 from past one month.. and everything was working good and perfect.. but all of a sudden metro apps stopped working..
live tiles are working.. when ever i'm trying to open, it was not responding..
and the worst part of effect is, when ever i'm trying to open files in this manner ::: select file -> right click-> OPEN WITH there is an error reporting sever execution failed.. what should i do now ...

Worked Great! Actually I just uninstalled "SageThumbs" and that fixed it, but it was your post that lead me to this answer. Thanks!
