Disable Thumbs.db in Windows XP.
Article published on March, 2005.

Windows XP, shows the thumbnails view of certain folders. It's default feature. Even if you set folder view options to "List", Windows can roll back to "Thumbnails" in all folders where it finds Thumbs.db file.

The problem is that Windows XP recreates Thumbs.db file automatically. Luckily there is a way how to fix this problem:

1. Select Tools -> Folder Options... from Explorer:

2. Choose the View section, and check the "Do not cache thumbnails" option:

3. Click OK. Done.
