This file can be safely deleted from any directory. However, because this file may have settings associated with the folder that it contains and deleting this file will change these settings back to default. For example, if the folder containing this file has a different icon and you delete this file the default folder icon will be re-enabled.

This hidden file is placed in every folder to tell the operating system how to display and customize the viewing of that specific folder. For example, this allows a folder to have a custom icon.
There are some viruses which infects desktop.ini to stay hidden (including nasty zero access). I recommend to use a good antivirus program to scan the system and make sure it is not infected.

Check to see if you have hidden files and folders to show checked and Hide protected operating system files unchecked. This will cause desktop.ini to show on the desktop if that is where you see it.
Please check those 2 settings. Just in case:
Click Computer icon on your desktop or in the Start Menu.
When Windows Explorer opens click Tools/Folder Options/View.
Under Advanced Settings make sure Don't show hidden files, folders, or drives is checked.
Next make sure Hide protected operating system files (recommended) is checked.
