Tried the link above, however it didn't help.
It downloaded & installed, no change.
Change the pdf to open with adobe instead of pdf x

Hi gheiman,
There are at least 3 potential solutions discussed in the link, with two of the potential solutions contained in the reader comments at the .  Are you sure you tried them all?   The one that seems most promising to me is contained in the response from Luke H, as shown below;

"in the .reg file, the fix is applied to the WOW6432 node of the registry ONLY, which is not correct. Actually there are 2 locations that need to be patched:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Classes\CLSID\{DC6EFB56-9CFA-464D-8880-44885D7DC193}]
“AppID”=”{534A1E02-D58F-44f0-B58B-36CBED287C7C}”

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{DC6EFB56-9CFA-464D-8880-44885D7DC193}]
“AppID”=”{534A1E02-D58F-44f0-B58B-36CBED287C7C}”

Once these are both entered, the previews work fine!"
