Why do you need important system files being shown?
Of course I can't delete them from the folder. If they weren't necessary they probably wouldn't be there.
They are not necessary, they just happen to customize the desktop folder, giving it a different icon for example.
I don't know why they show up at all since they don't in previous versions of Windows. Just seems Goofy for an "improved" OS.
They don't show up in Windows XP because it does not do anything special with the desktop folder by default. (i.e., use a special desktop folder icon) So there is no "desktop.ini" file by default.
