    It's used by the Finder to specify how one sees the Finder Window, and the contents therein. You cannot stop it.

    It sounds like you are viewing all hidden files if you're seeing them.

    To turn that off, Open Terminal and copy and past this in, hit Return, and then logout and log back in:

    defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles NO
