Recovered Files in Trash
Almost every time I start up I notice in the dock that i have trash that wasn't there when I shut down. The files are named "Office Setup Semaphore"...When I open the file it empty...
What is this?
Thanks a ton.

Roughly speaking a semaphore is an element in object oriented programming that keeps track of the use of resources to ensure things don't get out of control.
I would imagine this file you're seeing is something that keeps things steady during MS-Office's installation process.
Have you installed Office in the near past? Was the installation successful, or did something go wrong? Do you have Microsoft updates to run?
