    Picture browsers will not display images.

    All program browsers for opening an image have suddenly started showing logos
    instead of thumbnail images, even though I check "thumbnails" where available
    as an option. I want to be able to view actualy image thumbnails in programs
    such as Photoshop CS2, Pictures browser, my web page designer software, etc.
    These all had been working fine. Any suggestions? I have Vista Home Premium.

    Open Windows Explorer, click Tools, Folder Options. Click the View tab, and then deselect the Always show icons, never thumbnails check box.

    I was surfing to find the answer I needed to repair this very problem. The link provided is extremely helpful. A Notebook owner asked me to repair his laptop. So I gave a few suggestions to increase performance and I did those steps to help. I did not know what I did to stop the pictures from showing and this jogged my memory good. THANK YOU to BRINK for this post!
