It's not a problem with Vista, but with the Nero MSI package. When a minimal
install is done, it part installs the codecs, which causes the errors you're
seeing when the Nero trying to thumbnail video clips.
Ahead need to fix the MSI.
You can get DirectShow filter manager here: http://www.softella.com/dsfm/index.en.htm
