Thumbnails not generating

Ok so here is my story:
I have tons of videos on my laptop (vista Home premium 64-bit) pretty much all of them are avi and they all had thumbnails
One day i went on a program deleting rampage to delete useless and old programs, and after that the videos still had thumbnails.
A few days after that i got a folder full of videos from a friend (avi also) but they had no thumbnails, in attempts to generate them from internet forums i checked the option to hide thumbnails and then unchecked it again. My old thumbnails dissapeared and did not come back... its very annoying have so many videos and not having thumbnails on them.
I'm pretty sure it's something i uninstalled... i installed ffdshow and many other codecs to try to fix the problem still nothing
I would REALLY REALLY appreciate the help!
Thanks in advance

Just an idea, when you click on "view" in the folder what do you see in the menu list? Ie: Tiles, list, detail, small icons etc. It may be just a matter of clicking on one of the icons..small,medium or large. They do have a bad habit of resetting, I sure hope this is the problem and not something more serious.
