If desktop.ini or thumb.db files are deleted, can they be restored if necessary? I noticed a couple of desktop.ini files in my doc or my pics, don't remember where, but my machine is set to hide such files & I don't normally see them. I deleted them & waited a few days prior to dumping the recycle bin to be sure they were not needed. Is it possible that a pic or software that I downloaded had ini files attached? If so, still not sure why they wouldn't be hidden. Anyway, I have been known to delete such a file if it shows up out of nowhere
Can anyone offer me any clarification? BTW...I am fairly certain that I am not infected...
