    So Vista somehow completely screwed up whatever function there is that displays thumbnails in Explorer. I think this MAY be related to when I uninstalled Windows Live Photo Gallery Beta, but I have no way of confirming that.

    Anyways, no thumbnails show up in Explorer for ANY images, this is EXTREMELY frustrating and there seems to be nobody else in the entire world who has faced the same problem I am having right now, despite the fact that this has happened to me once before already, I ended up reformatting and reinstalling Vista, but I'm sure as hell not doing that this time.

    Searching for a solution has yielded no help either, all the results simply state to 're-enable' thumbnails in the Folder Views window or the system performance window in the control panel. I've checked and thumbnails ARE enabled, they're just broken and won't display at all. I've noticed that some images which I have viewed in the past still show thumbnails at medium size, but if I change the view to something larger, it doesn't generate the thumbnail, it just flashes for a second and goes back to the default image icon.
