Question about Dell Dimension 4300S (Refurbished) (4300SB8BZ411) PC Desktop
All video file folders affected by no Thumbnail view, only get folder icon. Tried the obvious: Tools/Folder Options/Restore Defaults w/ no help. Files view fine on my Dell laptop with identical software.
Windows XP Home, SP3, current updates
I was hoping to hear a quick registry fix but just bit the bullet and did a deep System Restore and all the updates that went with it. Works fine now but will never know what caused it. Still open to any and all info.

Tips for a great answer:
Jun 14, 2010 | Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2

When viewing a folder with the Thumbnail view, WindowsXP creates a thumbs.db file.
This is a cache of the current pictures in that directory.
If you want to turn this feature off and save a little disk space
Start the Windows Explorer
Go to Tools / Folder Options / View
In the first section under Files and Folders, check Do not cache thumbnails
Now you can search for the thumbs.db file on your computer and remove them. No more should be created.
