Go to control panel..... performance information.... adjust visual effects. Make sure that the box for peek is checked. While in that area, make sure that all the boxes that may have an effect on your problem are checked. I have peek checked and thumbnails checked. Two separate boxes.
Ill be back shortly.

If this is a new problem, we could try system restore. That always works for me

System File Checker done, "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."...

By the way, I found another way to make windows forget the mini previews, run a program with compatibility mode -> Disable Composition checked, exit the program (Aero will restart), mini preview still MIA. Aero will 100% forget the mini preview(s)...

I don't think this is a serious issue, but is annoying... I think this is a bug, what do you think, Rich?

I mentioned before that I was looking through the forum for answers on this topic, several answers were that it was a bug.

Several questions for your though: Have a good graphics card?
Did you check all drivers?

Did you check your memory? Go to search type in memory diagnostics, see what happens?
BTW how much ram do you have?

It may be a bug, but if not, I would really like to get it working. If I could, this would be a very fulfilling day for me.

Ill be away for 30 min or so, but I will not give up, until that is mutually agreed.

You can see my specs, I filled it... memory is OK (I ran several OSes, so a memtest was mandatory to make sure that my computer can run 24/7). By the way, as far as hardware goes, this computer is stable, it ran XP before Windows 7 averaging 2 months uptime (restarts was needed for updates on the system), every 6 months I check everything... The hardware is OK.

As a last resort before I write it up to a bug. Do a repair install.

Before I do the repair install (this is a production system, so I need it to be running), I will install it cleanly on another computer (it has a Nvidia GeForce 8600GT 512MB gfx card, so it'll run Aero just fine), I'll update you when it's done.

Thanks

I hope you are not installing on two compters at the same time.
