Different Folder Views in a Document Library

I saw an answer for SharePoint 2007, but couldn't find anything for 2010 so I apologize if this is duplicate. We've created a document library that has multiple folders in it. I want the initial view of the library to be a different view than what the view is inside the folders. My reasoning behind this is that not the initial view showing all the folders does not need to see all the columns that are needed when inside the folder for the documents placed inside. It is more for looks than anything.

When I create a new view and assign it as the default view for the folder it shows. But as soon as I go back to the overall library and then go back into the folder the "All Documents" view is shown again and all the necessary columns are missing. I can even remove the "All Documents" view from the folder and it will still show up even though my custom view is the only one that shows up I look at the "Configure views for this location"

Any help you can give is greatly appreciated.

I believe this is a bug in 2010 that hasn't been resolved.  Do you have any Cumulative Updates installed?

I am still on the RTM version of SharePoint 2010. I'd imagine the best bet is to install the CUs and see if this helps. Since I'm pretty new to SharePoint, can you just install the latest CU or do you have to do them in order?

Thanks

You can install the latest, which is April.  However, the latest known STABLE ones are the ones from December.

Thanks for the response. I'll poor through the CU's to see if this has been fixed yet.
