There is an option to switch these thumbnails by using Gpedit.msc, if available in your version of Windows 7, (User - Administrative Templates - Start & Taskbar- last entry).

However It states vista only so not sure if it works with win7

Group policy will normally require a log-on, log-off for user settings or a reboot for computer items.

Have also seen some discussion of a reg hack for this but can't place it at the moment - will post back if i find anything

Assuming that the previews we are discussing here are the ones on the windows taskbar - as shown in the image uploaded.
