Pictures.library-ms is no longer working. This library can be safely deleted from your computer

When I try to access my photos from photo app on my Windows 8 Pro computer, it shows error message Error: “Pictures.library-ms is no longer working. This library can be safely deleted from your computer. Folders that have been included will not be affected” while accessing Pictures Library.” But I haven’t do anything with the library and webcam doesn’t take any pictures. Are my documents gone?

How to fix “Picures library is no longer working” on Windows 8
* Open the Windows Explorer, right-click on Pictures library.
* Select Delete from menu > Click “yes” to remove it. That doesn’t delete the contents of the included folders.
* Right-click on the libraries in the navigation pane and choose “Restore default libraries”.
