    I am having the same problem. When I first installed Vista a couple months
    ago, I had no problems seeing thumbnails....then I starting getting these
    Nero error messages, and ever since, I can no longer view picture or video
    thumbnails....I cant for the life of me figure out why. Please, does anyone
    know how to fix this problem.

    P.S. Nero is no longer installed on my machine, and I still cannot view
    thumbnails.

    CANNOT VIEW ANY THUMBNAILS IN WIDOWS EXPLORER USING WINDOWS VIST
    ULTIMATE. THIS USED TO WORK BUT DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE. THE IMAGES BEGI
    TO OPEN THEN REVERT TO AN IMAGE PLACEHOLDER ICON. CHANGING THE ICON SIZ
    DOES NOT CHANGE OR RESOLVE THIS ISSUE. THIS OCCURS IN ALL MY PICTUR
    FILES REGARDLESS OF NUMBER OF IMAGES IN THE FILE, TYPE OF IMAGES, EDITE
    OR UNEDITED, ETC. THERE ARE REGISTRY FIXES FOR THIS IDENTICAL ISSUE FO
    OTHER VERSIONS OF WINDOWS BUT I CANNOT FIND ANYTHING FOR VISTA. IT I
    REPORTED THAT THIS ISSUE COULD OCCUR WHEN UNINSTALLING SOFTWARE, THOUG
    I HAVE NOT RECENTLY UNINSTALLED ANYTHING. I USE ADOBE PHOTOSHOP, AN
    SAVE ALL IMAGES AS JPEG. HELP!! THANKS

    please stop shouting in all CAPS.

    try system restore to a date where it was working.

    Thank you Barb. System restore has been attempted but did not work. I
    have no problem with images on my laptop, also running Vista Ultimate,
    only on the HP desktop.

    Just to add a more subdued comment on this issue...

    I am having the same problem, and there is no restore point to return to
    because this has been happening since the day I recieved this Lenovo laptop
    with Vista Business pre-installed.

    The issue is that viewing *Networked* folders containing only images very
    often involves all of the thumbnails loading correctly, one by one, and then
    simultaneously reverting to the generic "sea and mountainscape" placeholder
    image once the entire set of visible icons has finished loading.

    When you hit F5 to refresh, all visible thumbnails reload -- showing their
    actual contents -- but then revert again to the placeholder once all have
    loaded. I have only tested this with JPG images.

    This does not happen with local folders on my own machine, only networked
    folders.

    Barb, Thanks for the reply. I replied to this thread 'cause i have
    exactly the same issue; that is, after installing the lastest version of
    nero I can no longer see thumbnail images within explorer on Vista
    Ultimate.

    So I appied your related registry fix outlined in the above link, which
    had no impact, however there was warning message (attached) saying all
    entries could not be applied. I also tried to apply the reg file in safe
    mode, however this returned the same message.

    do you have a system restore point print to when you installed Nero?
    please try that.

    zachd [MSFT] Guest

    What file types can't you see thumbnails for?

    It's most important to restore all those "9DBD..." and "031E" registry
    entries. Those are the Property Thumbnail Handlers, you like them.
    Basically, look at that file. Search for "shellex\{" - all those matches
    are the preview handlers. Are those set on your system?
