Hey guys, there is a .DS_Store document and a newtork emblem on my dekstop and I am really not sure how they got there. I think I accidently did something in MainMenu when I first downloaded it. Now these are on my desktop and I cannot get rid of them. some help would be great because I do not like things on my desktop! Thanks!

You simply asked MainMenu to show invisible files. Just launch MainMenu again and take the invisible files off.

It's in the Finder section...

.DS_Store are created by the OS X to keep the information about the current location (eg: dimensions (x,y)) and these files should not be touched.
