Windows 7: Re-activated Windows 7 Home Premium, Images will not show thumbnail

Re-activated Windows 7 Home Premium, Images will not show thumbnail

On my desktop the images have thumbnails. My problem is that when I click on start and I click on pictures it just show names. I have attached a thumbnail. The pictures with no thumbnails is the Windows Pictures in start and the other one with thumbnail previews is the one in the my pictures folder. Notice they are both the same when I delete it in any of the 2 locations the images also disappear in the other place. Any help with this problem on how to show the thumbnails would be greatly appreciated. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1.
