Preview pane won't work

When I open "computer" window, I cannot get preview to show anything. All I get is "preview pane not available".

I never use the preview pane but have just tried it out.

Obviously with folders there is nothing to preview but with individual files I have found that some give a preview and some don't. pdf files, for example, are shown as well as excel and word files. Strangely, Publisher files don't show?

Don't you get any previews at all?

Yes,I too get PDF files. I do not get a preview of any Word files, but my Programme is Word 2002! I suggest this is the problem

Maybe - I have MS Office 2007. Hopefully someone else with 2002 will try it and post back.
