Restoring (turning "on") Video preview as a thumbnail

Happy 4th of July. I'd appreciate your help on turning the video previews back "on" when seen under thumbnails view. I have a Windows XP.

Some time ago, whenever I click on a folder's thumbnail view, I would see what each picture is, and the first scene of any video that I have (.avi files for example), so I would know what each contains. But then a program (Moviemaker) kept crashing, and I read somewhere to turn off the video image previews. I followed the steps and indeed I could no longer see the video previews (but I could still see the pictures' images in thumbnails view). The videos would instead display the icon of the player that plays it (realplayer in my case). And my moviemaker stopped crashing. I have now fixed that program, so I want to turn on my video image preview again.

Could someone tell me how to do that? I've looked at the Folder Options, and nothing there helped. I may have used the "run" command and specified something "off." But I don't remember it, and google didn't return anything helpful--maybe i used the wrong keywords? The last entry on my run command is "cmd." Could this be something I used?

Please help me turn on the previews again. Thanks!
