Vista Icon Sorting Nightmares

Is it just me, or is it an absolute nightmare to have consistent icon sorting in Vista? My biggest problem is that Vista seems to think it knows how to sort my icons better than me, and will flat out change my sorting settings on a folder to whatever it wants, or makes viewing by details a pretty nonsensical experience by adding a bunch of crap columns and removing the one column, "Date Modified," that I consistently want! In pretty much every instance, I hate it.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? Is there some setting I can change to stop this stupid behavior?

Vista seems to change the viewing type for me in Folder. One day I open up downloads and they are all Extra Large Icons, one day its Lists...and so forth. Can't figure it out.

I have never seen or heard anyone having your issue, it's quite weird.

Hey guys,

This may help Bman, but not sure if it will the OP.

I used method 2 on the above link, which is a .reg file. Save and then double click to import to the registry. It has worked for me and since i have no resets of views.

Just a thought, hope it helps.

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
