    Imported photos not showing thumbs


    Hey friends,

    I just imported an old DVD of Disney pictures I took on vacation and instead of showing me thumbs in Windows Explorer, I'm seeing the icon for Photoshop (which is my default program to open JPGs). In addition, when I select one in Win Explorer, nothing shows up the in Preview Pane on the right. I notice this also happens with other folders containing older photos.
    This is maddening - I hope someone has a solution!

    Hmmm. Strange, a reboot fixed everything.
