When I highlight a file in a folder I no longer can see the file details nor
does it generate a thumbnail preview of picture files. I used to know the
fix but can't remember. Any help apprediated.

You should find those options on the View Tab of the Menu bar. View
as a Webpage will get you the preview of your pics. (In Windows
Explorer, Win98)

Left click in the Explorer's right panel. Press Control and the plus (+) in
the numeric keypad (right side of keyboard). If this doesn't work, read
this article:

There is a thumbnail view repair file from MVP Doug Knox on his site:
www.dougknox.com, just go to utilities in the left column menu, then look for
"Repair image preview and thumbnail view in Windows Explorer" in the right-column.

Here is the direct link to the page:
Repair Image Preview:
http://www.dougknox.com/utility/scripts_desc/fixpix.htm

Is that what you tried?
Try it again....if still no joy, try this:

Click Start>Run, type:

REGSVR32 THUMBVW.DLL and click OK.

Click Start>Run, type:

REGSVR32 WEBVW.DLL and click OK.

Hi Ron,

Glad to see you're still here.

I don't think we're on the same page with my problem yet. If I open a
folder, which has "view as web page" activated, the folder icon & name shows
up in the upper left corner and as I select different files in this folder
the name of the file, size and a thumbnail preview of pictures is supposed
to show up under the folder icon. This is no longer happening.

You solved the problem Glee by repairing the IE6.

I was thinking about it myself because I was noticing
some strange things going on with the browser (couldn't access Windows
Update or Hotmail), but I couldn't figure out how to repair it. They don't
have a nice button to push in Add/Remove Programs anymore.

Thanks very, very much, I was starting to get worried. Amazing that
repairing IE6 fixed so many problems, including functioning of WMP9.
Windows Explorer I can rationalize but WMP?

Anyway you guys on the newsgroups have snatched my buns out of the fire once
again. I don't know how you do it.

Thanks again. All the best.

If IE Repair fixed all that, my intuition suggests that spyware, etc.,
were possibly at the root of the problem. What kind of malware scans
have you done recently?

I had something concise and clear to say about IE and its integration
into the OS, its being an underpinning to so many programs, especially
those from MS... But I forgot...

Hi Gary,

Yes I suspected that something got into my system but I'll be darned if I
can find it. I've scanned with Spybot, Spysubtract, Ad-Aware, Spysweeper,
NOD32, Aluris Spyware Eliminator and found nothing.

Well, it does look like you covered a lot of bases. Might consider
reading Jim Eshelman's newly revised anti-parasite pages at
www.aumha.org/a/parasite.htm. An online scan or two, a HijackThis scan
submitted to the appropriate Aumha forum... Might find something that
has managed to avoid, evade or cripple your existing protection
