Do you have Adobe Photoshop 7 or Elements installed they are known for causing this issue when you have generate thumbnails selected.

I found a registry fix ,to restore thumbnail views in XP ,but your seems to be working ,just not with some file types ,you could try running the fix ,I don't see what it would hurt,but then again this is Windows!!

I have never used this fix ,but have use many others from the same site this one comes from.Registry Edits

You can download and run this little fixer if you wish,use at you own risk!:)

Maybe some system files screwed up try this with you windows cd in the cdrom ,go to start/run and type in SFC /scannow. to repair system files .
Note there is a space between the SFC and /
