No thumbnail Preview of video files in VISTA Ultimate

Hi there,
I'm having this problem since 2 months or so..I've tried every possible solution for this......see the image below

I've used the codec pack K-LITE codec pack( used randomly K-lite MEGA codec pack and K-lite Codec pack FULL after every new release codec pack).First I used to get thumbnails for all I dont know what hpnd I get thumbnail previews for only ".MP4,.FLV,.MKV" and no for .avi,.divx,.3gp etc..

So what do u say...both the file sare .AVI and dont get preview for .divx,.3gp..etc..

I think after I installed and used the software called "RegistryBooster2"..and cleand REG errors in my Vista Ultimate..this problem begun.

Anyhelp in this regard is REALLY appreciated :)

You will not get video previews on files for which you lack the proper video codex. Furthermore, that codex needs to be accessible to Windows media player. If it is application specific, only available to Nero, etc. it won't work.

How to clear the thumbnail cache in Windows Vista pdf_button.png printbutton.png Clearing the thumbnail cache:
Windows keeps a copy of all of your picture, video, and document thumbnails so they can be displayed quickly when you open a folder. If you delete the thumbnail cache, they will be automatically created when needed. The thumbnail preview problems can be resolved by clearing the thumbnail database and let the system rebuild it as and when required.
To do so, use these steps:
Click Start, type cleanmgr and press ENTER

Click My files only

Select the system drive letter from the drop-down list

Uncheck all the entries except Thumbnails

Click OK

The thumbnail database is stored globally in Windows Vista, unlike Windows XP, where the thumbnail database is stored on a per-folder basis. In Windows Vista, the default Thumbnail cache location is mentioned below:

Does not display preview of pictures in explorer in small, medium, large icons after update of vista

All you can do is to try to reinstall said update. If you can identify the specific update, try reinstalling it. If not, download and install the latest Vista service pack.

My taskbar doesn't show window preview

Did you install Vista yourself? Coud you have installed Vista on a PC that is not Vista ready? Most likely problem is that your video card is not supported for the preview feature of Vista. However, if you are sure that your video card is Vista compatible then you might need to find the latest (Vista compatible) driver for your video card. I once upgraded a video card driver to find that it suddenly supports Vista window preview function.

Thumbnail generation

There is no known software compatibility with adobe premiere and vista. The problem will be that you might have changed any setting in vista for thumbnails. I know vista is much different than windows. So, have a look around at the settings.
