Hi everyone,

    The desktop.ini file, of which you speak, is normal for XP systems to
have in the common startup group. It will normally show up under msconfig.
The reason why it appears to open in a text file on the desktop suddenly
upon bootup is usually because the attributes for the file have changed to
normal instead of hidden and system. The thumbs.db file is generated by
Windows in any folder where 'show thumbnails' has been selected and can
safely be deleted.

Thanks for that bit of information.  I had just started using thumbnails
in my picture folder and noticed that one.  Glad to know I can safely
delete it.

I find some of the MVP's on the MS XP news groups can be rather rude, so
tend to learn bits and pieces from here and also the WinME ng.  (G)
There are not many people running WinME any more, so we have
unofficially made it our "transition ng".

I have another odd one if anyone cares to answer it.  In My Music
folder, I am now getting all sorts of "Album Art" files.  I use Music
Match and generally download an album cover to go with a song.  But that
never happened on WinME.  These are very small jpegs (3-10 kb), but I
get dire warnings if I try to delete them.  Says they are "System Files"
and a program might not work if I delete them.

I have several subfolders (14) and these songs were mostly transferred
over from my WinME computer and the dates of the Album Art go back to
when I did that, I believe.  They are not in every subfolder tho.  Just
one of those "hmmm" things.

Cheers......Heather

Please do NOT listen to the advice of the buttman.
He is a known troll in this newsgroup.
He gives very bad advice and uses stolen software.
His makes war against the (trustworthy) regulars in a very rude way.

I have the buttman a long time in my killfile.
Therefore I do not have to read (and see) his filthy and abusive
language and pictures.

Stay away from every advice from butts.
(this is just my opinion.)

Out of curiosity when you ran bughunter, at anytime during any scan did you
manually cancel it? or did you always let it fully complete?
