Image preview in windows explorer


I am using windows 7 on my PC. I am not getting images preview in windows explorer. when I open a folder that contains image files ( jpg, gif,..etc.,) I am not able to view the images when I selected large icons and extra large icons in more options for some reasons(both in the preview pane and in the folder itself). Can any one please tell me how to view the images in windows explorer ?

Thanks in advance..
