    All of a sudden on the desktop a .DS_Store file appears.

    If I delete it, then in a few seconds another one gets created.

    This is a new Lion issue.

    How do I stop this crazy "hidden-but-shows anyway" automated file creation?

    Thanks,

    type this in terminal:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles NO
    and then type:

    Code:
    killall Finder
    See if that works. If not then maybe logging out or restarting might help.
