thumbnails

Hi, My videos (mpg,avi) no longer show thumbnails. They were OK then they just appear now as icons! It's weird as some of them show thumbnails. How do I get them back? Thanks.

thumbnails for video files

Hi, After much trouble trying to fix this problem it is still there. Have done as suggested and tried everything but still no luck. I have found out that the following is missing, regsvr32 shmedia.dll, and when I open a cmd prompt (as administrator) it gives me the message that it is not installed. I managed to get some thumbnails for a while but not all now nothing. I have changed default program to VLC and back again to WMP. I wonder if an update from windows is the culprit! Is there a way that I can download regsvr32 shmedia.dll so I do not have to reinstall Windows 7? My pictures are OK and display thumbnails!
