Windows 7: How to change default folder view

I find this view rather confusing and would like to have the same view that XP had with some images or the image of your choice on the front of the folder. This is mainly a problem with my photo collection. The Vista/Windows 7 view just makes it harder to quickly recognize what's in the folder.

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?
