    About Desktop.ini :


    Desktop.ini is used to tell Windows how to display a folder. For example, enabling Thumbnail view creates a desktop.ini file in that folder which amongst other things, tells Windows to add an extra item to the View menu for that folder. Desktop.ini files are also used when you customize folders, change their icons etc.so problem with that.

    About Temp.htt

    It is worm morm detail's look in:

    i think its a virus named redolf or something similar,it affects the three above mentioned files,even if u delete the files they will regenerate themselves since they are not removed from registries.

    if regedit or taskmanager didn't worked or files can't be deleted then use any other processer and end task the virus. And you can delete it...

    Yes. Your system is infected by "W32/MyWife.d@MM!M24" Worm.


    This worm will run through 'Documents and settings' and places three files in each directory with the names- desktop.ini, Temp.Htt and WinZip_Tmp.exe
    It also changes the windows settings to 'Hide Protected operating system files'.

    To get rid of it:
    Download: W32/MyWife.d@MM!M24 Removal Tool
