Windows 2000 Pro SP4
User is unable to view jpg's etc. in Thumbnail view. The normal photo's that one would see with Thumbnail enabled show only the jpeg icon. If I change the associated application to open jpeg's the Thumbnail view will show that application (example: IE) vice the thumbnail photo.
