Disable Using The Desktop.ini File

#Topics: disable desktop ini,windows explorer ignore desktop ini,avoid windows explorer use desktop ini,windows xp disable destop ini,malicious disable desktop ini

How can I disable Windows Explorer in Windows XP from using desktop.ini and folder.ini files?

Some viruses are on the flash card, and they can be in those files. Can I make Windows Explorer safe from opening such flash card?

Autorun is disabled.

Yes, there are other file managers, but it is my girlfriend’s computer.

Try to use advice from Disabling Folder.htt and Desktop.ini in Registry page:

To let you know, desktop.ini and folder.htt are both important files in Windows system. But they were already infected with malicious codes, we can disable the use of it, anyway, Windows will still works fine without this two files.
