Is there a Windows setting that I can change or a registry entry or do I have to install third party icons?

I would also like to do this. The current view gives me a headache looking at it. Has anyone come up with a way to do this?

If I change the view of one folder, the view of all folders changes?!?
For example, if I change the view of one folder to "large icons" or to "list" or whatever, then ALL of the folders will have that view. But I want specific folders to have specific view types. How can I accomplish this?
