I have been reading this tutorial and trying to get it to work for me for about an hour, but it is not doing what I want. I hope this is the right place...
My Problem: When viewing JPG's in a folder, I am trying to get Win7 Explorer to behave like my old WinXP did - ie, display the folder in thumbnail views (clearly, with no icons on each image), and then when I click on a photo to see it singly, to move to the next photo each time I hit ENTER or use an arrow forward. Sounds simple, but it has not been for me.
Following the instructions:
I am using WINDOWS PHOTO VIEWER as the default program.I can get everything I want, except the thumbnails showing in the Folder View have icons (large green boxes with white checks) over each image, making it practically useless. (I am attaching a screen print, which I hope shows my problem.)
In FOLDER OPTIONS, VIEW, ADVANCED SETTINGS, I have unchecked "Display File Icon on Thumbnails", which I thought should do the trick, but it makes no difference that I can see.
I have looked around other settings, but am afraid to try things I don't understand. (In trying to fix this small problem, my desktop and whole screen look seems to have changed, but I won’t ask for help on that. The change is subtle, and I am not even sure what it is. What ever happened to RIGHT CLICK to get explanations for settings?)
Anyway, I hope you can understand my problem on viewing thumbnails in a folder, and please help me!

A feature in Norton 360 is responsible for the Tick mark (green box) and double arrow (blue box) overlay icons. Norton 360 v2 adds a feature called "Backup Status Indicators" which clearly identifies which files have been backed up, which files are pending backup and which are excluded from backup.
A check in a green box means the file’s backup is current, while a chevron (») character in a blue box indicates a file that’s been changed since its last backup. Files excluded from the backup set display a slash in a gray box.
If you don’t need the backup indicators feature you can turn it off by clicking Settings in the Norton 360 main window, unchecking the Backup Status Indicators check box and clicking Close.
Hope this helps,

That did the trick!
COMMENT: i wasted a couple of hours dealing with this issue. I long for the days of WinXP, where everything worked and fixes were clear. As each individual application gets more complex, their interactions become exponentially more confusing. There must be advantages to updating software, other than bringing incremental income to the vendors, but there sure are a lot of disadvantages for the ordinary user. Being age 69, and my own personal IT Department, most days I think I will be happy to get comfortable in Win 7 before I die. I also hope I can stay in Win 7 until doomsday, as I can't take another version!
Thanks so much!!!
