It used to be when i single clicked on a picture file.
bmp,gif,jpg that it would show a miniature of that picture
on the left side of the folder under the folder name
ie My Documents. Then i let my sister on my computer and
now it will only do this for bmp files and not for jpg and
gif. How do i change this back?

**********copy everything above this line*******

now hit enter twice so there are some blank lines uderneath what you copied

now save it as "fix.reg" and as all file types

note the quotes

now double click on the fix.reg file

reboot and all should be ok
