Windows 7: Flat or 2D folder images

Flat or 2D folder images

Hi everyone,

Windows-7 shows a folder image (folder.jpg) as an image coming out of a folder in simulated 3D.
I absolutely hate this . It is a waste, because the "folder"-thingy takes up a lot of space...

I used to have a small program that scanned all folders, and set the folder.jpg as the folder image, as a flat image in 2D and without the "folder"-thingy.

Can anybody help me find it again, or tell me how to get rid of the 3D-folder, and only keep the image?

What was the name of the program that you used?
When you say you used to have, what happened?
Did it get deleted or corrupted in some way?

I hope this helps!
