when I browse folders in WinXP, and select the Thumbnails option, nothing is turning up.
the files are there, but without the images.

Does anyone have any idea about this?

Open Start Menu > Run, copy paste the following, and press Enter:
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\shimgvw.dll

If all goes well you would see a message that DllRegisterServer in shimgvw.dll succeeded.
