Just found out that this type of file exists (the Show Desktop icon in XP), and it looks interesting. Can anyone provide a website on how to MANUALLY code these things?

it's just plain text.........


open it up with a hex editor and you'll see

EDIT: removed the rest of the information I posted including the link. this technique can be used as an attack vector, and I don't think we want to be posting it here. if you want information PM me. it's not particularly interesting anyway, just a proprietary Explorer script format, and executes a few Explorer commands (which can be hijacked).
