How to disable vista's new folder features which persist even with 'classic' folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have windows classic theme and classic folders set on my vista but there's still recurring vista-ness that needs to be removed.

    Folders now try and guess your content  and then show a bunch of empty fields like star ratings, author, blah blah blah, when it inevitably guesses wrong.

    I'd like to disable the content guessing, and all the new fields added since XP.
    I'd also really like to disable the file sorting.

    I've no problem digging in to registry values or manually loading patches, and I'm hoping someone who has had the same problem can point me in the right direction.
