    Default Thumbnails & Icons Settings

    Windows Picture and Fax Viewer used to allow thumbnails. It has the option to view thumbnails but about a month ago, I started to only get generic icons. I get the same for other things, such as my own collection of icons. They have the same generic icon for each icon so that I can't see what the icon looks like before I choose it. Is there a setting that I can change so that I can again see the pictures and icons in thumbnail view?

    There are a number of reasons why that happens, but the most common is that the .dll file is no longer registered. Try re-registering it.....

    Type regsvr32 shimgvw.dll into the Run box and hit OK. Then restart the computer.

    Any difference?
