Windows 7: Removing Metatag/Data from Windows Explorer

Removing Metatag/Data from Windows Explorer

A lot of times the "Rating" metatag will show in Windows Explorer, I know how to make it go away, but its annoying when it comes back or when I make a new folder and I have to remove it all the time. I will never use it, I have no need for it the way I have my files and folders organized. Is there a simple way to just delete it from the system so it never appears? I assume something within the registry? Windows 7 64 Bit.

Also I'm not sure if the correct word to use is metatag, or metadata, so sorry if I sound noobish.
