How to make folder thumbnails like XP?

Hi there im dappointed at the new 'expandable'-looking folder thumbnails. Is there a way to make the folder thumbnail appear flat and with a chosen thumbnail image (like on XP), rather than the fold-out windows 7 version? Thanks a lot.

any way to make taskbar thumbnails appear faster?
