Does anyone know what Thumbs.db (database) is for? It once came with a custom set I downloaded, but It dosen't look like something neccesary. I'd just like to know what it's for to make sure it's not  virus or something.

It just stores the icons for the files in that folder, so Windows can load and display them more quickly.

 

(And it's a real pain when you're trying to edit an icon manually, and Windows insists on continuing to use the version stored in Thumbs.db! :P )
