Open a folder in windows explorer. Tools>Folder Options>View. Mark "Do not cache thumbnails." Click "Apply to all folders". For any folder you wish to see as thumbnails, you'll need to uncheck the "Do not cache thumbnails" or it will make for slow viewing.

Thumbs files are only there, so you can browse media files faster (the small picture that you see for every movie or image in a folder are stored there). When you delete it, windows just makes a new one - if you don't want this follow the advice in the above post.
