    I used to be able to see my photos in a thumbnail view inside their folders. I would open the folder and click on View and select either Small, Medium, Large or Extra Large Icons and I would see the actual photo. Now, all is see is a cartoon type icon of two spruce trees for every photo. Is There any way to be able to view actual thumbnails of the photos? Input is greatly appreciated.:mad:

    What program have you installed that has this icon?
    It has set your image default program to this program.

    I have no idea what program I have installed that uses this icon. I am running Widows Vista and IE 8.0. How does one change the default icon setting?

    Dave....I went to my Folder Options---View tab, where there was a check mark in the box that say "Always show icon, never thumbnails." Once I unchecked this box, my thumbnails magically reappeared! Thanks for your assist!
