Disabling preview thumbnails

Those preview thumbnails explorer creates and uses as icons for .avi files are nice and all, but if I open a directory with incomplete avi files (probably just divx) explorer crawls and doesn't recover. How do I tell it to stop trying to generate thumbnail previews, at least for video files?
I've searched, maybe I'm just using the wrong terms.

To solve this problem all you have to do is the following:-
1. Open up regedit
2. Go to
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.avi\shellex\PropertyHandler
3. Delete the "Default" value which should be
"{87D62D94-71B3-4b9a-9489-5FE6850DC73E}"

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
