This is a Vista 'feature'. It's working as intended, and there's no way to stop Vista from doing this.

And i'm sure there is a very good reason for it, shame I can't think what it is...

Recursively delete all the desktop.ini files, it will reveal the names again
will also speed up browsing the folders list loads

Yes, please reveal the script as I feel when my latest batch of laptops arrive I may have similar issues...

I don't understand what the 'purpose' of this Vista feature is. It doesn't look like a great idea from where I'm sitting.
Does anyone know why this happens? It must make administering folders an absolute nightmare

Don't worry, some of us are still trying to understand the purpose of Vista itself

If you have 2003 R2 or 2008, just set up a file screen to block desktop.ini from being written to the volume your staff/student shares are on
