SolidWorks part, assembly and drawing icons not displaying in Explorer

I'm sure I've seen this topic before, but can't find it in the forums!

I've recently done a clean install of SW 2009 (32-bit) SP2.1 from the SP2.1 DVD, on a freshly-formatted hard drive. I've noticed that now the icons for the SolidWorks files in Windows Explorer are not displaying properly, either as thumbnails or normal icons.

Is there a way to rebuild the SolidWorks icons to get them to display properly?
