    Thumbs.db files speed up the viewing of folders with video or image files for those who run thumbnail view.

    If you want to get rid of thumbs.db files: -

    Control panel > Folder options > View > Do Not Cache Thumbnails.

    This won't delete all the existing files, but will stop windows creating any more of the fuckers.
