    They are usually hidden, so you could just hide hidden files. But that file keeps information about icons used and the icon view inside the folder, so it will be re-created if you remove it, anyway.

    If it is visible, and faded, it is normally a hidden file. Go to Control Panel > Folder Options, View tab. Check the boxes that say to hide hidden and system files.
