Not the answer that you're looking for but it's a problem which isn't
I've seen it here a few times with IE4 & have come across a "recommended
fix" which was to run winfile (win 3.x filemanager) & from the view menu
check the show hidden/system files and then delete the contents of the
offending directory, including the desktop.ini
IE won't function "normally" until the system is re-booted which will
re-create the desktop.ini
I can't remember exactly where I saw this but I suspect that it was in a
knowledgebase article somewhere.
all that I can recall that I came across it when searching for ways to
fix a buggered font installation (same solution btw).
