Well, I downloaded an app from the web called SuperDocker. There is an option to add a quit button to finder. I tried to test it out by clicking on it and relaunching finder. After I found out what It did to my finder, I immediately uninstalled it using AppCleaner. I want to show you the screenshots which are saved onto my desktop but I don't know how to. Someone please tell me how then I will upload the images.I use an app called DSWipe to get rid of .DS_Store files, but every time I start up my Mac the .DS_Store files seem to come back. The main reasons I am worried about this is if my hard drive becomes corrupt or when I put School work on my USB stick and it messes up the School System.Thanks in advance.

The .DS_Store files actually come back every 5-10 minutes.

They are supposed to be there, they're part of OS X, although they are usually hidden.
.DS_Store - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
