photo previewing

Hello. I run in win 7 home premium 64 and i have one question.Why can't i see the preview of a photo. I also have another laptop with win xp and there, if you select large icons, you can see them without opening the file (in small icons ). I have tryied 3 programmes ( windows live photo gallery, hp media smart photo programme and nero media hub ) and i have iven selected the option " very large icons " but the only thing i see is the pic of a flower (in windows live ) , a pic of a camera ( in hp... ) e.t.c. What can i do in order to be able to see the photo without having to open it first. ( I forgot to mention that i have also used a programme from microsoft that runs and checks your system for such problemes, it cleans things in registry, from the official site but still nothing)

Have a look at this Tutorial, and ensure that the option Always show icons, never thumbnails is unchecked.

Folder Options - Open
