Is it possible to remove the preview for .avi files in Explorer?

I tried searching for the answer but couldn't find it.

You would have to change the View settings to remove this panel.
Tools ¦ Folder Options... ¦ General (tab)

On the General tab you would select "Use Windows classic folders" and that should remove the entire pane where .avi previews show up. This also removes any other common task previews that might show up in this panel.

There's no way to prevent it from ONLY previewing .avi & other video files? :(
