Can I edit the thumbnails on the "Most Visited" page in Google Chrome?

Chrome's "Most Visited" page is driving me crazy. (This is on a Windows 7 PC.) I want to add a thumbnail, but can't seem to do it. I've tried:
1. Visiting the page over and over from bookmarks.
2. Clearing Browsing Data from settings.
3. Going to
C:\Users\ Username \AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
and editing the "Preferences" file with a text editor.
4. Going to the same location and editing "Top Sites" with a SQLite Database browser.
Number 4 actually got the result I wanted, but after rebooting, then loading Chrome it changed the thumbnails back on me, eliminating the desired thumbnail and bringing back a bunch of useless ones. It was like something rewrote the Top Sites file after Chrome was running for ten seconds or so.
I'm stumped at this point. Can anyone help?
