    I believe there are two when your account is a member of the administrators group. The reason things don't run unless you select "run as administrator" is because while using your computer you are running in a lower (medium) level or regular user level. When you need to run something that requires high level access, UAC pops up and switches you to a administrator version of your same account. The two desktop.ini files are for your dual access.
