Taskbar Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable
Ha. That's a different tutorial than the one I was using that had me changing the registry. This tutorial got the job done by suggesting that I change to an Aero format instead of the high contrast one I was using.

I actually like the aero theme better and would likely have changed to it at some point and then the thumbnails would have come back and I probably would not have made the connection and been mystified as to why they came back out of nowhere.

Thank you. This is very helpful to me.
