Thumbnail icons for any picture and video file won't appear at first until I change what to view them as, and when I do, the icons are blurry. It also won't let me use my personal image files to be set as my desktop wallpaper. Had this problem for a while, since I had to adjust my registry to fix a sound problem.

Try this it might fix the Thumbnail problem.

Go to Start-> Control Panel -> Folder Options

Under the General tab make sure the "Show preview and filters" is checked.
Under the View tab make sure the "Always show icons, never thumbnails" is unchecked and the "Display file icon on thumbnails" is checked.

Check out the link below for fixing the desktop background.

Try performing an sfc /scannow and make sure you have your windows vista cd handy.

What sound issue were you working on that you needed a registry tweak?
