My wife's desktop is experiencing something odd. When she clicks on the Pictures item from the Start menu, every photo it shows, is all of the stock photo of a daisy. All the same. Even if she's got the preview pane up, that's all it shows. Why is that?

She's got Windows 7 Home Premium installed, 64-bit with SP1. It is a HP desktop, and is about a year old. Came with Windws 7 installed.

Sounds like thumbnailing is disabled. When you double-click, does the picture open? – digitxp Aug 23 '11 at 0:53
Yes, double-clicking on any image file opens it up fine. – Rod Aug 25 '11 at 15:29
