Open up a folder, set it up the way you want it defaulted to..
Then go to the "Tools" menu --> "Folder Options..." --> switch to the "View" tab --> click the "Apply to All Folders" button.

Setup folder view to Details then in Folders Options uncheck "Remember each folder's view settings", click on Apply to All Folders.
