Windows 7: Folder content icon

Folder content icon

Hey was just wondering if it was possible to disable the folder content preview on the icons?
I searched for it but didn't really know what it was called.
Pretty sure it can't be done, but thought I might as well ask.
Screenshot of what I mean.

Any help is appreciated.

Try this: Go to Folder Options ->Click on View tab and there select Always show icons, never thumbnails.

Yeah, that works but I like having the thumbnails for images. Guess it will be a choice of either or, never both. =\
