    Video Thumbnails Missing After SP1

    How do I restore video thumbnails in explorer windows? Applying SP1 turned both Windows Media Center and Media Player off. Turning both features on did not restore the thumbnails. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    View is currently Large Icons. Folder Options 'Always show icons, never thumbnails' is not checked.

    If you navigate to the folder using Windows Explorer and display the properties. Under Customize is the folder optimized for video?

    Sorry, I'm out of ideas. Perhaps someone else can help.
