I used to store mp3's on my desktop until it started to slowdown my system. Than I started to store them deep inside my hard drives. One thing I noticed that is weird though is the fact that when I click "tools>show hidden files & system files" in explorer I can see the following three hidden items on my desktop.

When I click on the two hidden images they display a cover for an mp3 I had on my desktop long ago. I dunno what the thumbs.db icon is for...

But I was wondering if it was ok for me to delete these three hidden files?


Thanks
