Ok, so I am brand new to Windows 7 and have been enjoying a lot of the new features. The only frustrating thing so far was the inability to manually rearrange icons in folders, but that's another story...

I just installed the recommended Windows updates last night, and now the Thumbnail Previews for open windows on the taskbar are disabled. I've restarted, etc, with no luck, and tried to find help online, but I can't seem to find a solution for Home Premium that doesn't involve editting the Registry...

Hopefully this is a simple fix, and I am just not typing in the right search words. These forums were fantastic when I got a nasty little virus on XP last time, so I am turning here again for help.

Please let me know if I need to provide any other information. Thanks for the help, and Happy New Year!

Hmmm, looks like maybe a Desktop setting just failed somehow. It didn't work the first time, but I changed my desktop theme back to a standard Aero one, then recustomized it, and the Thumbnails seem to be working again.

Guess that solves that problem! Only question is if this is a known bug or just a fluke?
