Notes about the INI file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The INI file type is primarily associated with 'Initialization/Configuration File'. These files are typically ASCII text with various configuration options set into sections. The sections are usually designated by a term in square brackets (e.g., [section title]) followed by single lines listing the various configuration options. Note: This file type can become infected and should be carefully scanned if someone sends you a file with this extension. The special file DESKTOP.INI can also be used to control what and if files are shown by Windows Explorer in a particular folder.
