Prevent Explorer From Expanding Network Folders when in Folders View

When you are browsing a network share and there are over 1000 folders in the root (like at work), is there a way to prevent Explorer from expanding all the Folders when you have the "Folders" view enabled?

Have you played with the "Simple folder view" setting? If I understand the problem correctly, it might help to disable it. In the Windows Explorer menu: Tools > Folder Options > View > Display simple folder view in Explorer's Folders list. This is one of the settings I disable immediately upon installing Windows XP. Again, not sure if that's quite what you're asking, but it's worth a shot.
