Is there a way to force it to use a different view for this folder or disable Thumbnail view entirely?
I remember, the dam.n annoing image viewer M$ bloated into XP crap could be disabled by this:
regsvr32 /u shimgvw.dll
So, maybe there is a way to kill Thumbnails or change the default behaviour that force opening the thumbnail view of the "My Pictures" directory AND all it's subdirs? (I wanted and managed the My Pictures to be root of my D: drive, so imagine what happen when...)
BTW, in few occasions the Thumbnail view even crashed on me (and I'm not alone, look: http://ask.metafilter.com/mefi/33620 ), silently closing the application with all my work/text lost. That is "just great" and just another reasons why I f*cking hate this XP crap!
PS. the crashing get MUCH better when I disabled this:
It disable the DLL that create Thumbnails out of movie files
regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll
