    I keep finding files all over the place named Thumbs.db. I can't see em even with show hidden, but only with some applications like winzip. Anyone know whats up with this? And how to get rid of em? One reason I ask is that I made a program and got an installer, and when I makes the install file, I see it including the Thumbs.db files.

    Dont really understand your question, but thumbs.db is a Paint Shop Pro file that is used to cache pictures in directories when browsing them using PSP.

    ...Could be....but it's usually

    a file created from Windows XP which allows you to see thumbnails in directories.

    It is the thumbnail cache. If you don't want these files, you can disable thumbnail caching in Folder Options > view. However it will take much more time to open a folder in thumbnail view.

    Yeah, I would keep it there if I were you, unless you don't use the thumbnail view in any of your folders.
