So when I create a file in a folder, say a *.docx, and I move said file to the desktop and then back to the folder, it appears with green letters (encrypted). Same happens for every file I create on the Desktop. Basically every file that touches or goes through the Desktop gets encrypted automatically.... why!?

Windows 7 64bit


Go to Run and enter the following:


Locate the folder Desktop and right click --> Properties

In the General Tab , click on Advanced and make sure the Encrypt contents to secure data is not checked
