OneTOC2 in every directory of a network share
One poster's reply:
Well, those are the "Table of Contents" files created by OneNote 2007.
(ON 2003 created .onetoc files) I have found that it doesn't seem to hurt
OneNote to delete them. OneNote just recreates them as needed. The only
way to prevent them from being created is to NOT open any parent or
grandparent folder as a "Notebook" in OneNote. Since this is on a network
share then any user opening a folder as a notebook will cause this to
happen. While the help files aren't too very explicit about this, a
to treat as a notebook by "opening" it as a notebook. There is nothing
really special about these folders other than OneNote treats it as a top
level folder for a set of OneNote files.
What you have to do is separate the folders you want to use as
They can be on separate shares or just in separate branches of the folder
structure under a single share. Then you have to make darn sure that NONE
of your users gets the bright idea of "Opening" one of the folders being
used by the other program as a OneNote "Notebook."
This was also stated on another site:
Important: Some malware camouflage themselves as OneNote Table Of Contents.onetoc2, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the OneNote Table Of Contents.onetoc2 process on your pc whether it is pest.

To help you line up items on your pages (for example, note containers or pictures), OneNote automatically snaps the items to an invisible grid as you move and reposition them. To temporarily disable the grid, hold down ALT while you move an item on the current page. To permanently turn the page grid option on or off, click the Snap To Grid command on the Edit menu.
This may help somewhat down the line:

Seems like you have to turn off the grid to turn off snapping????
