Unfortunately, I have no idea what C057178A4C0AEB70 is. But I do know Desktop.ini: this is a file that contains the customizations you made to a folder (icons, layout, etc). Normally Windows XP hides these files, but I am assuming you have unchecked 'hide hidden folders'. I am not sure if you can delete desktop.ini.
If you do not want to see hidden files and folders: open any folder>menu>Tools>Folder Options>View tab>Hidden files and folders>Check "Do not show hidden files and folders". This will hide the desktop.ini.
I have one more question, what makes the desktop.ini appear on the desktop?
