Q: Solved: Some Thumbnails not showing images. Help!

Just within the past week or so, when viewing pics in windows explorer, only some of the thumbnails will show the image they are representing. Some won't. I tried rebuilding the library and doing Disk Cleanup to delete them so they'd rebuild; I've checked/unchecked the "show icons not thumbs" to see if that would kick it into showing it. Nothing has helped.
Also, maybe related, when opening up any Windows explorer window, the green bar at the top is very slow to load all the way to the right, sometimes never getting to the other side.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm running Windows 2000, and I want to be able to see JPEG images when I select "Thumbnails" under the View menu. Currently, the only images that display are Windows bit map images (BMP). I know it's possible to see JPEG windows as thumbnails under Windows 2000 because I used to have a different computer that ran 2000 and did display JPEGs. However, I got a new computer that doesn't. I'm assuming there is a way to tell Windows 2000 to display JPEG images in thumbnails, but I can't find any reference to thumbnail views in Windows help or on the Microsoft website.

Any suggestions, please?

On my USB external drive, when I connect it to either an XP desktop or a W7 laptop, the video files show as thumbs ie: small pictures of the content. Yet when I connect it to the other W7 desktop, I see generic boxes marked "WMV", "AVI", or whatever. I matched the view properties as far as I can see and am using the same MPC player on them. Any thoughts on how to get the thumbnails to appear?

Guys, I don't know what happened. I was just browsing online - and everything has been fine with my Firefox (version 3.0.11). Then all of a sudden, images on websites stopped loading. ALL images - even tiny .gif icons for this forum. Background images won't load.

Was there an update or something that has caused this? I can load images in Internet Explorer just fine. I have tried clearing all private data (cache, offline content, temp files, cookies) and nothing is helping. I have disabled Adblock Plus and any other Add-ons that I can think would cause this.

I have even restarted Firefox numerous times and NO images are loading. Help please! Is this happening to anyone else?

I started to have this problem lately, some of my desktop image thumbnails are not showing completely ,like they are not downloaded correctly or unfinished.
It doesn't happen with all images ,but it happens pretty often.

Files affected: images - downloaded or saved on the desktop by various programs such as adobe photoshop ,photomatix HDR generated image ,mainly big image files like over 1MB.

I tried the disk cleanup thumbnail cache ,it worked recovering the unfinished thumbnails ,but it still happens again.

A restart doesn't help. And it only happens on the desktop. in folder files are fine.

Thank you.

I know that if in Folder Options I choose "Always show icons, never thumbnails' the '.thumbs' file stops being created everytime you view an image file in Explorer. But I do want to see thumbnails, or more specifically I like the idea of viewing the image of the *.jpg, *.dng etc. when in Explorer. However, what I don't like is getting a '.thumbs' file being created.
I'm sure it is possible to have one without the other but can't recall how to do so.

Vista Home Premium SP2. When browsing folders of digital photos, Explorer will load up all of the thumbnails, and as soon as it has the last one loaded, 95% of the photos will revert to the default icon and I'll end up with thumbnail views of only 2 or 3 images out of 75 or 80. If I change the thumbnail size, it'll "rescan" the folder, load all thumbs, and then revert 95% random ones back to the default icon. This makes it nearly impossible to organize my photos and is VERY annoying and problematic!

I had Windows Vista since last year and everything was fine. Yesterday, my icons/thumbnails on the internet disappeared and show a box with symbols. I can tell what the box says when I scroll over but how do I get the icons back. I restored the firewall to its default setting and the icons came back but now they're gone again. Please help.

When I open Windows Explorer I and go to my Picture File, the Thumbnails don't always show correctly. I can open Windows Explore and see no Thumbnails displayed but if I open another copy, it's better but not all come up. I have multiple folders, some display no thumbnails (a blank white sheet), others show a few and others show more. I also get a green bar at the top that never finishes. Sometimes, I open Explorer, and if I try to expand the Folder Tree on the left panel it won't expand, The Files are on an External Flash Drive. I've tried many troubleshooting searches for the problem so yes, I have the Folder Option, "View" set to "Display thumbnails." This is a recent problem. One last thing, the computer seems as it's freezing and not updating the thumbnails, but currently the CPU usage is only 4% under Task Manager.

A:Windows Explorer not showing Thumbnails

Did you make any changes to your Windows Operating System recently? Sounds like the aftermath of a "tune up" that went wrong.
That being said, the data that has no thumbnails.... can you open them and view the data, I'm curious to know if it's corrupted.

I have checked in the only two places I was aware of that would cause this:

Folder Options - View ....however, there is no option there to check show Thumbnails. I believe this option should be there at the top, but it isnt.

I also went to Properties of My Computer, Advanced, Performance. It is checked there to show Thumbnails.

But for whatever reason, I only see icons when I should see thumbnails. And yes, I have changed the view to Medium, large, extra large.

A:Vista Ultimate 32 not showing .avi thumbnails...

There is a registry issue where sometimes the explorer cannot locate the thumbnails
and there for when browsing through the folder some files dont have a thumbnail but
a generic symbol for the type of folder it is, You can fix it by following the next procedure

1) Save the Registry Fix file as Registry.cmd
2) Then run the batch file with elevated administrator privileges.

And you should see an improvement,

I read somewhere that all you have to do to see thumbnails on the desktop is to right click on a clear area of the desktop -> View -> Thumbnails

But I don't have View when I right click on my desktop not even in grayed out, so how do I enable thumbnails on my desktop?

I do have thumbnails everywhere else and when I go to the desktop with Explore I get thumbnails there but not on my actual desktop. I set my folder options to custom view for all folders.

Thanks for helping out,

Some of the thumbnails aren't showing up windows explorer even though they are the same file type. There will be 12 episodes of a show in .AVI or .MKV, and only 9 will have thumbnails, the other 3 don't. I have the Haali Media Splitter on to show thumbnails and I installed the Windows Service Pack to to it too (not sure which one is actually working, if I had to guess I'd say it's Haali).

To enable the thumbnails on Haali Media Splitter I click it, the went: options → explorer integration → show thumbnails (yes) → thumbnails offset (10000)

Not sure what is wrong...can anyone help?

And this is a problem with pretty much all the file types, some thumbnails showing and some not when they're in the same folder and I got them from the same source (all the files in a folder are either AVI or MKV, but the problem happens with both)

Hello. The thumbnails in my music folder don't display correctly for some of my subfolders.

I've Googled this before and I haven't found any useful solutions. It seems most people just clear their thumbnail cache, but that only seems to work on the C: drive. My music folder is on a separate partition.

Anyway, this is the problem .... I have my music folder, and all subfolders, "optimized" for music. In an artist folder, the album folders will usually show the proper album artwork.

However, when I go up a level, the artist folder doesn't show the album thumbnails in it. In this picture, you can see Barenaked Ladies doesn't display properly--- but their neighbor, Band of Horses, displays just fine. It's this inconsistency that really confuses me.

Anyone have any ideas?

They just show that little icon.

I have went through a lot of the threads in response to this problem and have tried them all without any success. Could it be old settings that transferred over and are not compatible. Thank you to anyone that can help me.

A:Issue showing image Thumbnails when browsing folders

Hi hollyw,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Here's a tutorial on how to do this in a variety of ways. Try them in the order presented as that's from the simplest to the most complex (even though I imagine you tried the first few already). Note the comment (and link to the procedure) near the top to set the default program to Windows Photo Gallery if none of the other options work (which you may or may not want to consider - or perhaps at least try to see if it works - let us know either way - and change it back if you don't want that as the default): Thumbnails in Windows Explorer.

If that doesn't work, try rebuilding the Icon Cache: Icon Cache - Rebuild to see if that helps.

If that doesn't work, you may want to clear the thumbnail cache (it won't delete anything but the cache and will rebuild itself when you open folders though it may take more time the first time you do so as it needs to do this first). Here's how: Thumbnail Cache.

I hope this helps. If not, post back with results of what you tried and we'll try some different options.

Good luck!

I have tried using both Firefox and IE6 with no success so it appears not to be a browser issue. I have accessed these sites on a different computer and the websites have been fine.

A:Images not Showing up on Web

Hi and welcome to TSF

Did this issue just start without explanation?

Have you tried clearing temporary files and cookies from IE - TOOLS>Internet Options>Delete both ? Some sites will not render in Firefox anyway - maybe the two issues overlap.

Have you tried switching your file wall off just to test out that possibility?

I would try uninstalling and re-installing zone-alarm.

Also, an additional check for malware might be worthwhile:-

Hi All,

Back to pick your collective brains once again ......

I've been using my computer for several months now, with little or no problems.

I've installed no new software, made no new changes ( at least not consciously ) but today i started experiencing problems with IE7

When i load a web page, it loads text only and no images or graphics.

It doesnt seem to be a problem for flash content, but rather static images, logo's and the likes.

If i right click on the image, and select " display picture " it loads it fine, but i cant figure out why this would be happening.

Anyone else come across this problem and have any solutions ?

Thanks in advance.

I got a new Samsung laptop because my other laptop was slow and old. However, there is something strange in this laptop the images on firefox don't appear all the time.

I followed their guide: Cleared cache and cookies, it worked for few hours then images are not loading.
- I deleted my ESET smart security: It didn't do anything.
- I installed Panda free antivitus and still the same problem. So it's not from the antivirus program I'm using.

I checked my other laptop and images are showing without any problem, so it can't be from my connection.

What else can I do? I think I exhausted my laptop uninstall and Install a lot of programs and it's still new.

Just reformatted my computer the other day, and now at certain times after I restart most of the icons aren't showing their image. They work fine, but it is still annoying. Here is a ss, anyone know why it's doing this?

Well I use to use IE on my destop but since I got a laptop ive started to use firefox and I love it !!

Now, I use forums and everything and people post screenshots, with firefox it chooses to show them when it wants. Sometimes it just leaves a blank space and other time it loads them. Most of the time it doesnt load it though.

Ive tried using IE and sometimes it doesnt even show pictures. I searched it and saw a guy fixed it because he had a prob with Zone Alarm, I have zone alarm but I set my cookies to low so it would accept everything.

I really would like it to load pictures, anyone know wut the problem is?

I've recently upgraded to Dreamweaver CS3 on my PC.

This is the first time I've had this problem, but I've just pulled in an image that I sliced up and saved for web using Photoshop. All of the src links start ".." (two periods) as if it doesn't know the root folder. so all of my src links are as follows:

img src="../dw/resume/images/sample_08.jpg

I've set the graphics folder and the the other pages are working fine. Is there a setting I'm missing or something?

Hi,can anyone helpwith this problem...i just recently removed WINREANIMATOR from my computer and now no images show up on any web pages

A:No Images Are Showing Up On Any Web Pages

WinSock XP Fix can can cure the problem of lost connections after the removal of Adware components or modifications of the Winsock settings. Sometimes your Internet connectivity will get corrupted due to invalid or removed registry entries.Or you can try WinSock2 Fix, if that fix didn't work.When you run it, click on ReG-Backup button first to backup the registry, and then click on the Fix button.OR Try resetting the IP address:Go to Start/ Run and type: cmdPress Okay or Hit Enter. A dos Window will appear.At the command prompt type or copy/paste: ipconfig /releaseHit Enter.When the prompt comes back, type: ipconfig /renewHit Enter.Close the command box and and see if that fixes the connection. No reboot needed.

Ok mate first some system specs please because I cannot tell how many drives you have or what is connected up when you do the install. If I see correctly there seems to be a some large storage somewhere with a heap of TV stuff on them.

You sure you didn't screw up the page's code?

You tried different browsers?

This is more likely to get an answer if posted in a dreamweaver oriented forum, like say this or this.
Here we deal more with windows 7 and hardware issues, not web design.

Recently many of the sites that I visit have the empty box with a small red X in it in place for images. At first I thought it was just the site but now it's happening on almost all sites that have a lot of images. I usually have to refresh the page three or four times before they all show up properly. It doesn't to seem to be any specific type of image I cant view. It happens with both JPEGs and GIFs.

So then I thought that it could possibly be my firewall. So I disabled it and refreshed the page again but that didn't work. So I decided to come here and get some help if possible. It is getting very frustrating.

Can anyone out there tell me why when I go to pull up a tech article or some such document that has images as part of the article, the images only show as a box with an "X"? The images tend to support the explanation of the text, but they aren't there. Is there a box within Windows Explorer or something in my Zone Alarm that I have to set in order to get these to show properly?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
