    icon display no long displays the pictures in the folders

    Suddenly my icons (large) under "view" "large icons" no longer display the
    actual pictures in the folder as small icons instead it just display some JPG
    logo and no pictures.

    What happened? How can I get back to it showing the actual pictures in the
    folder? How do I keep this from happening again?

    Thanks

    Folder Options -> 'View' tab -> 'Advanced Settings:' -> clear the checkbox
    for 'Always show icons, never thumbnails'

    Using Vista Ultimate as well, check the attached screenshot to make sure
    we're talking about the same dialog.
