Can't delete thumbs.db

I am trying to clear out some old directories on a CIFS share.  I am using Windows 7 and Explorer.  Many of the directories can not be deleted because they contain a thumbs.db in there.  What's the mojo to damn the torpedos and delete those stubborn holdouts??

You may need to disconnect the user from the shares first.  If you're connected to the server, then you have to tell the server not to save thunmbnails.
