Can’t delete folder because thumbs.db is in use

To get rid of the annoying “Can’t delete folder because thumbs.db is in use” error, do the following

1. Open gpedit.msc

2. In User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Windows Explorer

3. Enable “Turn off the caching of thumbnails in hidden thumbs.db files” .

Now, you loose some functionality doing this, by the error is far to annoying to keep.
