What are Thumbs.db files for? How can I prevent them from being created?

I am using Windows XP. Everytime I delete a folder which contains Thumbs.db file, I get a message: Thumbs.db is a system file and then it allows me to delete it. Can I disable the creation of Thumbs.db file from the beginning itself?
