Windows explorer display size of every file in KB only

I just upgrade from XP X32 to Windows 7 Pro X64 and I noticed that Windows 7 display size of every file in KB only. so for file that's larger than 2GB, it display rediculous large number for KB instead of change unit to GB. Is there anyway we can change this back to what it was in XP? I have attach a screenshot with this thread.

As I recall, my XP showed the size of a file under "details" view in KB as well. The only time I have seen it in MB or GB is in the status bar.

This has been the case since Vista it seems. There is no known way to change it. A Guy
