Vista wasn't generating any thumbnails and this has been pissing me off for a month now. It seems that the culprit is actually nero and I finally found a fix that works after trying a bunch of different things. Nero seems to totally screw up your file associations, and even when you try and re-associate them, it doesn't work. I figured I'd post the fix here since I know this particular issue has caused a lot of people to simply re-install their entire OS.

Paste the entire quoted text below into notepad, save it as "fixneroassoc.reg" ("" are important so that it saves with .reg extension and doesn't stick a .txt at the end). Run the .reg file. Reboot. Problem solved.
