This is KDE, not Gnome, of course you can turn it off :-)

I think it varies depending on the version of KDE, but go into the the KDE 
Control Center, and have a poke around in either of:
  Components / File Manager
  LookNFeel / Behaviour
There's lots of options there to choose what previews you want and what you 

The other place is actually when running Konqi, go to the View menu and choose 
Previews and select what you want to keep
