Google Stop Prevent Windows 7 From Deleting Thumbnail Cache

Works excellent! The thumbs are instantly there when I select a folder like I remember it to be in XP.

I noticed looking at
the thumbcache_96 file was only 2,736KB before the tweak, (that was after browsing tons of folders) now just browsing a few folders after the tweak its grown to 872,736KB and it continues to grow which is a good sign. I dont care if it grows to be 5 gig. It works.

It seems to me, Seven actually runs smoother with its Aero & eye candy ON rather than going to a basic type UI.
At least, if you have a decent GPU.

I think mostly because the GPU renders everything, which actually makes it more efficient.

But maybe its just me though.
