Windows 7: Windows 7 not showing all thumbnails

Windows 7 not showing all thumbnails

I have Windows 7 ultimate 64bit, I just upgraded from professional, when I had professional, all of my videos had thumbnail previews. Now, just about zero do. Is there a way to get this back to the way it was before? For example, I use VLC as my default player to open vids and it is just the cone, no thumb. The same goes with WMP

Crap, there's a way to rebuild thumbnails, maybe that's it, but I forgot how, heh. You're not exceptionally low on disk space, are you? Give me a second I'll find out about refreshing the thumbnail cache.

Ok, do a Windows search for 'disk cleanup', run it and make sure the "Thumbnails" is checked before you click 'clean system files'. Good?

Nope, I don't know what's up...all pics show thumbs, but only some videos do. Before, they all did, and I have the same ones on there and still abou less than half show thumbs for the videos. It is really frustrating!

You may try Shark007.net - Windows 7 Codecs - WMP12 Codecs .

After installation, run the program, and check the "shark007 suggested settings" ... it will generate all the video thumbnails.
