Can't view NEF files in Windows XP or Photoshop

Sorry if this isn't the right forum for this question...

I had to re-format my hard drive, and lost all programs on it. I have reinstalled most programs, but for some reason I can't "see" my NEF files when viewing in Windows Fax and Picture viewer or Photoshop File Open menu. When I select "thumbnail" mode for viewing the file, I get an icon only. I have downloaded the Windows RAW image viewer to no avail. Previous to having to wipe out my hard drive, I could see the NEF files. I must be having a brain fart/senior moment about downloading some software, a patch or codec? Without having to go to ViewNX2 (which works fine) what do I need to do so I can see these files. (An answer of "get a Mac" does not help at this time.)

I'm trying to view NEF files from a D70, D200 and D300. I have Windows XP SP3 installed.

Thanks.
