view mini photos in my pictures and not just

Specs: Windows XP

Hi,
Can anyone help me with this?
When i put the card from my camera in to my pc and look in the folder all the pictures are their but are displayed as the windows picture and fax viewer genetic icon, to view each individual image i have to open each picture seperatly, it used to be that i could see mini images of each picture. Furtermore, all the files ive created in the past in
'my pictures' shows 4 photos from within that folder on the folder cover but all the ones i create now dont. The problem continues in the folders whatever view you have it on be it thumbnails or filmstrip unless i actually open each picture i cant view them. I used to be able to just open the folder in either thumbnail or filmstrip view and i could see small images of each picture now all i get is the genetic widows picture and fax view icon. I have tried looking in folders and changing the open with option but nothing seems to put it back to ho it used to be. I have even gone to my local pc world but their advice as usual was to wipe the entire system and start again. I dont want to do that, i havent the time to spend loading programmes on all over again.

If anyone can resolve this i would really appreciate it, its not a massive problem just really annoying.

Thanks

If that doesn't correct the problem try:

Click Start> Run then copy & paste or type:

regsvr32 /i shimgvw.dll

Click OK

Restart your computer.

Note that the spacing is important.
