    my w2k machine no longer creates thumbnails in explorer for *.jpg filles or *.bmp files, but does for *.jpeg and *.gif files. i was messing around with the file associations earlier and fucked myself over somehow along the way, but i don't know what information needs to go back into the registry for windows to create thumbnails for these files again.

    any help is greatly appreciated. :hs:

    Game, set, match.

    I'm hesitant to recreate the problem on my own machine. This is an odd predicament. :dunno:

    :bowdown: :bowdown: thank you!

    owned myself again, though: turns out i had done this already after poking around on my own, noting differences between the associations, etc. my problem was that i named the (Default) value, but i left off the first { so it never registered.

    perhaps i should just go to bed. :o
