I have a desktop.ini file appearing in every single folder of my machine and I want them hidden. I need to have hidden system files displayed so I can't use that option in Windows Explorer.
Someone suggested that having a desktop.ini file in folders other than the desktop is a symptom of malware however, in my case at least, I doubt that because if I read the content of the file it shows harmless items:
I should add this never happened with Vista Ultimate despite my having hidden system files displayed.
Ideally, it would be wonderful if Microsoft could make it possible to hide individual files and/or file types.
