This works for me in Vista.
Open the Adobe Reader.
Go to "File / Open" and pick a folder with PDF's in it.
Click on the "View Menu" icon and change it to Large Icons.
The PDF's in the "File / Open" window should change to what you saw in XP.
You may need to scroll through the list, so each file is updated with a thumbnail.
When all of those files have changed, you can cancel out of the Open dialog,
or switch to another folder.
When opening that folder in Window Explorer with the Large Icons setting, your PDF's should now show a thumbnail of the first page like before. You'll probably have to contact Adobe to find a better way, as I only know how to do it a page (folder) at a time.
I use this same tactic on *.pspimage files.
