A solution to invisible files showing up all over
Authored by: DanPritchard on Mar 31, '04 02:56:43AM
You seem to have triggered the viewing of invisible files. Best to just re-hide invisibles instead of deleting. Do this in the Terminal (Tested myself):

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles OFF

Then relaunch the Finder, or log out and back in.
If later on you need to view invisibles again, just repeat the process with "ON" instead of "OFF".
