    Hi.

    I have Win2k SP4. For some reason, I can no longer view JPEG files as
    thumbnails in Explorer. I can still views GIF's and Bitmaps and other
    image files as thumbnails, but not JPEG's. I used to be able to, so I
    don't know what happened. I have not changed my system at all so I
    don't understand why out of the blue this has happened. When I double
    click on a JPEG file, it still opens in my default image viewer
    however (Irfanview.)

    Can anyone please tell me how to restore my ability to view JPEG's as
    thumbnails?

    Thanks.

    Copy/paste the following into Notepad and save it
    as a .reg file. Merge into your registry by double
    click, or right click / merge.
    Note: Everything between [ and ] MUST be one line
    only, and there must be a blank line at the end.
