Windows Explorer is now trying to treat all of my data as media files, wasting huge amounts of space on "artist" and "title" and other columns that have no relevance to .zip and .exe files. Manually changing the column selection works after the fact, but I don't want to have to correct it constantly. How do I keep it from making stupid "automatic" decisions like that?

Try right-clicking the folder that you're having trouble with, select properties, and customize tab and select optimize this folder for general items
