    Exclamation Fix for desktop.ini startup file bug in Windows 7 build 7057

    Every time you start windows 7 build 7057, a notepad file naming desktop containing some reference opens, it is a bug in this build. to fix this problem follow the following commands, suggested by MS MVP Ramesh Kumar.

    Click Start, type CMD in search bar and open it as Administrator.

    then switch back to C: driveís root and execute these commands one by one.


    C:\attrib +h +s +a +r desktop.ini /s

    Wait for a while and restart your PC.

    thatís it from the very next time the problem will remain no more.

    I just tracked down the file and deleted it. The file is in the start up folder in Program Data. That also fixed the problem and everything still works fine.
