    I was running 98 and I wiped and installed 98se and now I can't use
    thumbnail view, the option in the views drop down is gone, if I right click
    the root folder it has a check box to enable thumbnail view even tho it is
    selected the jpg's do not show as thumbnails...

    Any clues?

    As well i've noticed something else fishy, when i open a image to view it by
    doubleclicking it it opens in the photo editor program, not IE. I
    re-associated all jpg files to IE but whenever i open one it opens in photo
    editor.

    Copy/paste the following into Notepad and save it
    as a .reg file. Double click on the saved .reg file
    to merge it into your registry -- BACK UP YOUR
    REGISTRY FIRST.

    Note that everything between [ and ] MUST be one
    line only, and there must be a blank line at the end
    of the file.
