Superb - many thanks for this- it fixed my problem!

For reference, here is what I did::

1 Download the plugin for Win7 64bit system via below link.

2 Replace the file FoxitThumbnailHndlr_x86.dll with the downloaded one (make sure you delete the x86 DLL). The file could be found under the installation folder, somewhere like
C:\Program Files (x86)\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\Shell Extensions .

3 Register the downloaded preview plug-in.
1) Click on the Start Menu and select the Run item.
2) Type cmd in the field and right click the result and choose 'run as administrator' to run it.
3) A terminal window will appear on the screen. Run command regsvr32.exe "[path of the plug-in]“ to re-register the plug-in. For example,
regsvr32.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\Shell Extensions\FoxitThumbnailHndlr_x64.dll"
