.psd thumbnails with Photo shop CS6

After removing old versions of Adobe photoshop and installing CS6, my windows explorer made thumbnails invisible ( doesn't appear ) for .PSD ( Photo Shop Document ) files.

Why ?

The psicon.dll file that was included in versions prior to CS5 was removed by Adobe as it was causing too many problems.


To get back those thumbnails, here is the most suitable solution. There are quite a few fixes for this but the most reliable fix seems to be to run the free Mystic Thumbs program from here. Both 32 bit and 64bit versions are available.
