Changing folder view permenantly?

Ok, well I keep changing my folder view every time I open a new folder because this thing is ridiculous and assumes I want every option for every folder.

How can I get rid of the # column and the date modified columns permanently for every folder with out having to manually do it every time i load a folder.

Thanks

Right click on the column headers in details view... uncheck the colums you don't want, check any you want to add....

Now click Organize -> Folder and Search Options -> View -> Apply to folders.
