    How do I stop Windows (XP, SP2) from prompting me every time I move or
    delete a read only or system file (thumbs.db)?
    This is the prompt I get:

    Are you sure you want to move the read only file <filename>?

    I know I can change the attributes of the files, but I don't want to.
    Also, there's the thumbnails that are made in my image file folders.

    I just want to stop the prompts.
