Strange desktop.ini entries in IIS log

I have been seeing sporadic entries in the IIS log for our domain
controller which show my workstation attempting to access ~/desktop.ini
on the server. These attempts have been blocked by urlscan. Has anyone
else seen this before, and is this something I should be worried about?
I have only ever seen them coming from my workstation. I apologize for
posting this in security basics, but after posting it to the focus-ms
list I got no response.
