Displaying thumbnails in Windows Explorer will require that Windows Photo Viewer is set as the default program with all of it's default associations (except files) set with it as well.
If you disable thumbnail previews, then they will also not display in the preview pane in Windows 7 or Windows 8.
Tried moving the dll to a few other spots and updating the cmd to match... i mean: Just two days ago I purchased a new Pavilion HP with an 8 G memory and 750 Hard Drive.
Tried moving the dll to a few other spots and updating the cmd to match... Just tried it again though skipping the PSDCodec folder and just putting the dll in root C... *The module "C:\PSDCodec.dll" was loaded but the call to Dll Register Server failed with error code 0x80070005. I did try moving it to a path with no spaces but nothing changed...4) Select to disable the function, and hit OK Please note I tried out several other solutions first, which can be found elsewhere on this site under the topic Windows 7: Image thumbnails fail to appear. go to my computer than right click on Local Disk C:/ drive and go to properties and then click on the disk cleanup button make sure the Thumbnails box is checked and hit ok. None of those solutions worked for me, and when in particular trying out the solution involving the Task Manager (killing and deleting the files via run cmd), the system did not allow me to delete the files ... In my quest to find a solution to fix thát, I came across an instruction on Addictive to turn off caching of thumbnail pictures in Windows 7 and in the Local Group Policy Editor I noticed that next to "Turn Off Caching of Thumbnail Pictures" there is also the option "Turn off the display of thumbnails and only display icons” which - in my case - was enabled !! iv tried everything under the sun and clearing the cache for tumbnails worked for me windows 7 ultimate Hooray, thumbnails are there.

Don't know if you've done that or if it'll make a difference, but thought I'd mention it in case!
For more information about this problem search online using the error code as a search term.* tried searching for the error code in conjunction with the PSDCodec and found a Spanish site where someone got the same error but no solution was posted Hmmm, I'm guessing that the error code is irrelevant to the dll file, so if you just try searching for regsvr32 0x80070005 then you might find a solution that works despite being about a different dll file. Also if you're doing regsvr32 C:\then you probably won't need the quotes around the address.
Open Windows Explorer, click on Organize button present in command bar and select "Folder and search options". Now go to View tab and make sure "Always show icons, never thumbnails" option is not enabled i.e. If the option is enabled, uncheck the checkbox and click on Apply button. If you can't access Folder Options, you can use following alternative method: 1. Go to "Advanced" tab and click on "Settings" button in "Performance" section. Now make sure "Show thumbnails instead of icons" option is enabled.
Type in RUN or Start Menu search box and press Enter. If its not enabled, enable the option and click on Apply button.
