    How do I permanently remove the default check mark in the box next to
    "Thumbnails" or eliminate the category? Thank you in advance for any
    assistance provided.

  2. Hello C.B.

    Give this a tÑy and see if it solves the problem................

    As for diskclean up, go to Run, type:

    CLEANMGR /SAGESET

    Check the files you want it to clean,OR the oposite, once thru, return to
    Run, type:

    CLEANMGR /SAGERUN

    This also works in cmd.

    Come back and let everyone here know the results.


    Good luck and a Happy Thanksgiving Day

    Thank you very much for your assistance. I tried what you suggested but it
    didn't work. The checkmark remains in the "Thumbnails" box. I haven't
    rebooted yet. It's quite possible the result will be different after the
    reboot. I'll let you know.

    Problem solved. The answer is below:

    "Here are the instructions.... usual registry editing "warning" applies.
    Always backup the registry before making changes.

    Launch Regedit.exe and navigate to the following branch:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\Thumbnail
    Cache

    Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value named StateFlags

    Leave the value data to 0

    Exit the Registry Editor."
