Windows 7: Thumbnails not working...

Ok, I kind of assumed you were running 64bit because this seems to be where these problems are. Try to restart your computer. Sometimes the scan cant fix the files while the computer is in use. Restart, then come back

Did a restart and still the same....its not something that renders the OS or other programs non-operable...just a pesky annoyance...

Running another scan now and going to do a restart right on completion...will let you know.

Are your graphics drivers compatable? Look in device manager for any drivers that aren't compatable.

Okay, not sure what happened, but I did a disk cleanup of my C drive (for the who knows how many times now) and all of a sudden it works...

Maybe I will slowly reinstall programs I took out and see if any caused this issue.

Thanks again for you suggestions.
