    Windows Explorer not showing the preview of PDF files in windows 7

    I am posting my problem in this forum in a hope that someone will help me in fixing this issue. I have windows 7 Enterprise edition 64-bit OS. I have already installed Adobe Acrtobat Professional extended 9.2. However when i open a folder which has different kind of files like image, office documents, PDFs etc,the Preview pane of explorer windows shows the preview of all contents except the PDFs. I have installed Adobe acrobat reader again and again but it failed to fix my issue. What should i do?

    To fix this issue,firts of all uninstall all of Adobe Acrobat Pro extended 9 Package and all programs which are related to it.Then installe the latest version of Adobe Reader. After that, install iFilter for windows 64 bit edition.You can download it by visiting http://www.adobe.com/support/downloa...jsp?ftpID=4025. Once done, re-install the full package of Adobe Acrobat Pro extended 9 and uninstall Adobe Reader and supporting dictionaries. Open windows explorer preview pane. You would be able to see the preview again. If it failed to work for you then click on start button>>Control Panel>>Indexing Options. Now in Indexing Options window, click on Advanced Button. Now click on File Types Tab. Make sure that PDF extension is added and is set to index properties and file contents. Finally click on Ok button and you are done.
