"Search and remove thumbs.db files."

Thumbs Remover is a thumbs.db file archive remover that will locate these files through a Windows installation and delete them. This archive conveniently stores thumbnail images of all previewed images. This can be a privacy problem for people who view confidential documents that they do not want anyone to be able to get hold of even after they have removed the actual documents that have a thumbnail of them.
