    This started happening a few days ago...I thought my Hard drive was dying or something, but disk utility says its fine.

    Here is a screenshot of my utilities folder to show what I mean...anyone know whats up?

    Is Show Icon Preview in View Options checked? Whether it is or not, try the opposite setting.

    If that doesn't help, it might be a Finder issue.
    Locate your file and move it to the Desktop.
    Mine is in Users/MyUserName/Library/Preferences (OS 10.5.8)
    Now Restart.
    Did that fix it?

    If not, log in under a different user account.
    How does that look?
