    I can appreciate why Microsoft wants to hide some files from some of their users, they always have as far as I know. I like to know what files are where, most of the time I never see them or question them.

    It's interesting that Brink is the only one to reply to my question, and the link he gave me did not address the content of my desktop.ini
