Have you seen any folder on CD/DVD with desktop.ini (excluding simplest back-ups)? I remember only some malware abusing desktop.ini in PC or Autorun.inf on CD/DVD/pendrive.ghisler(Author) wrote: ↑2022-10-04, 08:34 UTC Sorry, it makes browsing shared CDs completely unusable, so I had to disable it.
1. Users playing with desktop.ini are mostly aware of possible problems. For example, I use either some system icon or icon copied to the folder like favicon.ico for website. For many folders desktop.ini looks like that:ghisler(Author) wrote: ↑2022-10-04, 08:34 UTC Also the paths in the desktop.ini file refer to an icon somewhere on that remote PC, so it may not even be possible to display it.
IconFile is for older systems (up to Windows XP), IconResource works in newer systems (starting from Windows Vista). Desktop.ini settings are described here: https://hwiegman.home.xs4all.nl/desktopini.html
Code: Select all
[.ShellClassInfo] IconFile=favicon.ico IconIndex=0 IconResource=favicon.ico
3. Blank icon is also informative, f.e. when Microsoft changed system resources in newer Windows versions.
