    Hoping someone can help on this, I just installed a new hard drive and after restoring from my last Time Machine backup I can't preview anything in Finder. When I go to it it shows just a plain white icon, if I preview movie or audio the sound plays ok but no visuals.

    I didn't notice and any issues during the restore and everything else is fine, I'm also on 10.6.2. So far the only option I can think of is to do a complete reinstall and manually restore the applications and files but would be grateful if anyone's got any suggestions I could try first?

    Additionally I've tried removing the plist files for Finder and Preview , no success.

    Decided on reinstall, seemed to do the trick after manually re-adding back the data.
