    not sure if thumbnail preview is the right term .....

    hi all - wanted to ask about why or how i might be able to fix .......

    when i open a folder ....

    1. if its full of pdf files (ex.: e-books) i dont see the preview / covers of the e-books any more - just the foxit icon

    2. if the folder is full of videos (ex: movies) i dont see a small clip of a scene as before now i only see my VLC Player icon. (the big orange cone)

    was there some setting that i might changed, not realizing?

    .....i recently disabled Desktop Window Manager Session Manager (ACCIDENTALLY) - of course & i its re enabled now.....

    .....have tried like crazy to better boot time by following the guide at Black Viper this moment im using the Vista Basic Theme (no aero)

    .....i really dont care much for the thumbnail previews on taskbar

    .. when i open a folder and click on organize & select folder and search options.....

    under view tab - the option "always show icons, never thumbnails" is NOT checked. ????

    .. have also tried clearing the thumbnail cache by deleting thumbnails under disk cleanup????

    SORRY for the long post but i HAVE been trying to resolve on my own.

    hang'n by a thread here :unsure:
