desktop.ini is a configuration file and is in every folder on your drive.
Thumb.db is a index of the thumbnails that are displayed in image folders and or any folder that has an image in it.

If you turn off Show All Files and or turn off Show System files and or check Hide system files (don't remember what the option is called) you won't see them.

You can delete the Thumbs.db files and it won't be recreated unless you go back to that folder and View the files as Thumbnails. desktop.ini will be recreated by the system no matter what you do.
