comment “find | grep | awk” fails miserabily
Your awk command works fine here, there's nothing wrong with it. If you're embedding this pipe into some other command (backticks, etc.) then the only difference I can think of is the single quotes you use in awk command.

comment Changing Desktop location in Windows results in wrong folder being linked
@Pacifier: These 3 lines specify the folder's icon in Explorer. See hwiegman.home.xs4all.nl/desktopini.html and msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/… for more info, actually if you google desktop.ini lots of useful info turns up :-)
