Windows 8 Preview Pane woes

I don’t like the Windows 8 preview pane.  It makes moving and deleting things difficult, especially over network shares.  It likes to lock shit up thanks to the (usually hidden) thumbs.db file it creates.  So, turn it off.  It’s a simple reg hack:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoReadingPane"=dword:00000001
