I think that file is created by the Desktop package, disabling that in your .emacs should give a quick and dirty fix. Also, there's probably a variable which determines in which directory that file is created - have a look in the desktop lisp files.
Off topic - is there any reason that the [h-e-w] prefix to the subject headings has ceased?

Subject: win2k non-stop retries to create directory on c:/.emacs.d
I don't know if this is a well known problem, but I didn't see any reference to it in the archives.
I installed emacs 21.2 on a win2k machine on the "D:" drive without administrator rights. When I run emacs, sooner or later emacs locks up the mini-buffer with repeated tries to create a directory at a location I don't have user rights. The message I get is:
Creating directory: permission denied, c:/.emacs.d
When I try to terminate emacs in this mode, it always aborts abnormally. Has anyone seen this problem? and if so, what can I do about it?
Thanks in advance.
