cannot preview PDF thumbnails in win explorer

Specs: Windows XP
I recently intalled NITRO pdf to my pc & I could no longer preview PDF thumbnails in my computer account. So I unintalled it but thr pdf files still says its "NITROpdf created". I also tried installing new Acrobat Reader but still the same. It previews when pc is open in another account. I don't know what the problem is & how to fix it because I even used the registry fixing tool for thumbnails preview but didn't work. HELP!

Maria_thea, I'm not familiar with NITRO so this's just a SWAG. My guess is that when installed, it changed a setting (View, Associations, etc.)?
Either reinstall it and see if it has an uninstaller you can run that knows where all the bodies are buried and can put things back (sorta doubt it) or look at the settings and change them back manually (most likely IMHO). Lots of apps are narcissistic and like to use only themselves.
