    All of a sudden I do not have a thumbnail preview for new avi files on my PC. The avi's that had thumbnails before this started still have them. I have run regsvr32 shmedia.dll. It says that it loaded successfully but the thumbnails for the new avi files do not display. What might the problem be?

    Do you have any codec packs installed, if so which?

    I have not installed any (third party) codec packs. I do have Nero 7 and Mirillis Splash Lite installed. The funny thing is that this just stopped working.
