It happened to me too, the solution is very easy get a free legal copy of Uniblue SpeedUpMyPC from this site, this program will clean the thumbnail cache as well as many temporary folders enhancing the speed of your computer safely, I have been using it 4 over three months, and no problems happened 2 me ever since. Plus, It's compatible with vista and win7.

And you can also get "Auslogics Registry Cleaner" which is also free, has simple interface, and compatible with windows7 and vista as well, it will easily clean the registry for a faster windows.

yeah, I'm wanting to save the thumbnails, not clear them. The thumbnail cache clears itself... that's the problem. I'm wanting it not to do that.

sorry alishanoon but you totally missed the target.
all the point is i don't give a ^#^Y&$ if windows will take even 2GB (not possible)
to save thumbnails, but god damn do it!

what you are telling us is to clear the cache, we want the exact opposite, to keep the thumbnails in the cache with no size limit and never clear it.

UniBlue Speed Up My PC WILL save your thumbnails. I dont know what "alishanoon" was on about. In fact thats one of its selling points. But you have to buy it, as its one of those tools built into the program and has to be running in the background (taskbar) to work. I sure its a registry hack if we can just find the entry to either up the index size or to save the index altogether.
