Preview keeps opening old files
My operating system is OS X. Every time I try to open preview, it keeps trying to open a very large numbers file that I deleted off of my computer. I get the color wheel and am not able to to do anything except force quit the application. I am unable to use preview because of this.

It's a newer "feature" of OS X. Open Terminal and type:
rm -r /.DocumentRevisions-V100

Hold Shift while launching the app.
However, remember that Preview will open the documents it had open when you closed it. (Though it should handle deleted documents better, I would have thought. Perhaps something else is the problem?)
