XPpro IE7/Details window doenst show pdf thumbnail

XPpro IE7/Details window doenst show pdf thumbnail

XP pro. IE7
On the normal explorer screen we have on the left side 3 panes. File and Folder tasks(with submenus), Other Places(with submenus), and Details.
Browse out to an example PDF. Normally when hiliting the pdf, the thumbnail will pop up on left side under the Details window. I only get the name, no thumbnail. Tried local and network PDFs.
Also when up into View and fooled around with Choose Details, still nada.
Was working fine yesterday. Tried on other XP pcs, they work, also tried using same View-Choose Details settings, same results.
The user did something but they have no idea what, neither do I.
Any ideas?
tanx in advance  

RE: XPpro IE7/Details window doenst show pdf thumbnail

Can you open the PDF normally on that PC (i.e. outside of the browser)? If not, perhaps you need to uninstall and then re-install your PDF software?

Hope this helps,
