Script was not meant to be applied to system folders. I have deleted original script file, but fixed version is available (link will follow).

What have happened is just another proove that script does it's job with conditions I have described when I uploaded it - it copies desktop.ini file from master folder to nested folders.

What I have never thought of is that system folders usually have their aliases a.k.a "LocalizedResourceName" in desktop.ini files.
Script have never actually renamed your folders. You can verify this with third party file managers like Total Commander etc.

Make search in all subfolders for desktop.ini file and delete all copies of desktop.ini in nested folders (inside master folder) except one for the master folder. (Delete desktop.ini only in affected folders, NOT EVERYWHERE)
Close Explorer, reopen. Now they should return to original state.

Please check a newer FIXED version at this post.
