I just got the Adobe CS3 suite, and i found that my icons freaked out...

first, all of my illustrator icons are now an orange Ai icon, and i can no longer see the little "thumbnail" of the graphic..which made it so much easier to see what file was what..

Also my acrobat pdf files... did the same thing, i used to be able to see them as the thumbnail proofs, now they are a pixelated adobe acrobat icon...

ive tried re-setting the program association to the file extensions, but no luck...

anyone had issues with this, or know what i can do?

PS.. the new CS3 sutes freaking rocks...

Are you on a Mac? If so, in the Finder, in the View menu, (or use command-j) make sure the box next to Show icon preview is checked.

If that does not work, go in to Applications>Utilities and run Disk Utility, choose the First Aid tab and click on the Permissions repair button. Don't wast your time with the Verify disk permissions, just go straight to repair.
