Get rid of desktop.ini bug in Windows 7 7057 build

Because I heard that they are not the only person to experience this problem after install build 7057I explain in a few sentences how you can convince a desktop.ini you do not thrive on monitor whenever you start system (And I say "some" because there are several desktop.ini in the system, although only 2-3 are vital for it).

So if every time you open PC the first thing you see is the text

[. ShellClassInfo]
LocalizedResourceName = @% SystemRoot% system32shell32.dll,-21787

(Stressful, in fact), you can fix that error froarte simply following these steps:

1. Log in folder Options (Organize->Folder and Search Options), Click on the tab View, Select Show hidden files, folders and drives and uncheck Hide protected operating system files;


2. Then go in:

  • C: Users [your user name] AppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuProgramsStartup (Where C: is the drive on which you installed Windows and [your user name] is your user name) or talking shell: startup in Searchacquis in Start Menu and yes Enter to open the Startupthen delete the file desktop.ini of that folder.
  • C: ProgramDataMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuProgramsStartup (Or talking shell: common startup in Search in Start Menu-> Enter) and delete desktop.ini from that folder.


3. Restart the PC.

And that's it! After rebooting desktop.ini will no longer be displayed on your monitor :)
