After getting rid of hijack software with the great help of the folks at bleepingcomputer, I noticed that there was a desktop.ini file on my desktop. I don't know exactly when it appeared.

The file contains just a single line:

Windows Media Player.lnk=@C:\WINDOWS\inf\unregmp2.exe,-4

Is this something I should worry about? Can I delete the file from the desktop?

You can get rid of that file. It can cause problems when using windows media player and will cause you no harm by removing it.
