I opened them in notepad, one reads:

"
[.ShellClassInfo]
[email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21799
"

and the other:

"
[.ShellClassInfo]
[email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21769
IconResource=%SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll,-183
"

These appeared after a full Malwarebytes scan.

The desktop.ini files are backups that windows makes
when changes are made to the desktop.
I see them periodically because I have show hidden files
enabled in folder options.
I usually just delete them if I am not having problems with the desktop.
