    Why do I get these thing appearing all over the place? They seem just to appear out of nowhere, but I'm sure it's something that's going on. Nothing seems to happen when I delete them.

    What I do is select 'computer' in explorer, search for desktop.ini and delete them, it doesn't seem to affect anything. I had about 20 of them scattered around in the computer just an hour or so ago. Some of them in Windows Office and similar folders are locked, but there's only about 5 of them so I just skip those. I'm still wondering what makes them. I'm using W7 and I notice it on my wife's W7 laptop too. I'll see if there's anything on the W7 forum.

    You should not delete files that are used by the system.

    Hide them if they bother you. desktop.ini takes up very little file space.

    Be careful twiddling your thumbs too.

    Have Fun.

    These are per folder configuration files. They show up when you have the option to 'show all system files' enabled.

    Why?

    You can see all system files, or you can hide them and not see the desktop.ini files. Pick one ;-)
