Taskbar thumbnails of open documents and programs stopped working.

I accidentally cleaned up my complete temporary files and after that and lists are displayed instead of that.Can you throw some light on this and btw my OS is WIN 7 Home Basic 64 Bit which does not support Aero Features, so that Aero thing doesn't work with my OS. Apart from system restore,how can I restore defaults.Can you single out the file/s which are needed to restore my taskbar thumbnails.

I'm confused...If you don't have Aero then you do not have thumbnails in the taskbar...

I would like to tell this forum happily, that my problem get resolved. Neither things worked but the registry restore.When I restored my registry to a backdated back-up created by my installed antivirus, the things got fixed like a charm.And now the taskbar thumbnails are working in my Lappy, hence so far it seems that Registry restore is the only solution for this problem.
