    Windows will show those hidden files no matter what, as they are not hidden in Windows. I don't know of a way to hide them there, but there was thread going on about this issue. Use MRoogle to look for it.

    You pretty much just have to deal with it or buy BlueHarvest. I dont understand why Finder needs to leave "hidden" files all over the file system, but it is incredibly annoying.

    +1 for BlueHarvest, I use it for my USB stick that I also use with Windows. Very handy!

    Finder isn't leaving anything. These files are not created by Finder. Some hidden files are used by UNIX. Others are used by Mac OS. None are useless. Finder doesn't create any of them and only shows these files if someone makes unofficial changes to Finder preferences. No one would ever know these files exist if he didn't use Terminal or use some third-party software to reveal the hidden files. Windows has hidden files, Linux has hidden files. Let's give a big cheer for hidden files!
