Thumbnails in Explorer - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Hi, in the past I had those thumbnails of my Illustrator doents visible in explorer. I don't know why, but they disappeared some time ago and now I miss them (got the ai file icon instead). Anyone got an idea how to bring those back? Thanks, J...

    Jason,

    Explorer Thumbnails were generated via aiicon.dll. That .dll has been
    removed in CS2 because on some systems it caused the inability to save
    or delete files and could result in Data Loss.

    You can get this dll on the web to restore your thumbnails. However, keep in mind that by doing so, you may encounter the "this file is in use" errors. This happens when you have a folder visible with thumbnails and you choose to open one of those visible files. Change to list view before opening a doent to avoid this.
