Disable the Thumbs.db file from getting created every time you view a folder using the Thumbnails view.

1. Click START–>RUN and type REGEDIT

2. Click the plus sign next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER
then Software
then Microsoft
then Windows NT
then CurrentVersion
then Program Manager
then Restrictions

Create or edit the DWORD value NoSaveSettings. Give it a value of 0.

Now you should never see a Thumbs.db file appear again.
