Forgot to add: Avira seems to think a tmp file in the MSI setup is a trojan. I had to disable it to let it install. I thought you might want to know. It's obviously a false positive but other Antivirus programs might think so too.
Thank you for the report.

On the second point: Generally speaking, you should not simply assume such virus warnings are false and quickly disable it; you should have asked experts for judgement, especially in the case like this: the file in question appeared in the net recently and you don't know the submitter of the file well... In short, you should not believe person like me easily.

But I digress. I guess your Avira considered one of the two small programs (or both) inside the .msi file and run during the installation a Trojan. They are extraordinarily small .exe files, with unusual prologue codes (unless you are a programmer you don't know what a prologue code is; never mind), and one of them modifies 64 bit only registry entries through 32 bit APIs. It sounds suspicious enough even to myself.

I think I should contact Avira support team for a solution.

On the first point: Well, it should be a bug. I tested it on Windows 7 64 bit, and thumbnails worked fine. At this moment, I have no idea why it works only with 32 bit explorer on Vista. Blossom, please be patient while I examine this bug.

And I need help from other 64 bit Vista users in this forum. Please try my MobiHandler and let me know whether the Thumbnails View worked only on 32 bit Explorer, or the Thumbnails View worked on both 64 bit (default) Explorer and 32bit Explorer.

Thank you for your corporation.
