    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, as I don't know what the problem is, but here goes: When I restart the computer I always have this (see picture) in my trash can. What is it? And how can I fix it? Please, it's driving me nuts. I believe it started when I used the OS 9 emulator to run Heroes III (a great game).

    That's stuff from the eSellerate registration/purchase library used by many shareware programs. It could be anything, or even two programs using the software and leaving droppings when they conflict.

    Try running Disk Utility and repair your hard drive.

    No dice. :(

    I do however have a suspect, because the problems started about the same time as I installed MSN 6.0.1. And now MSN always gets a failure about wrong password when it auto-starts, when I turn on the computer.

    I've also noticed that iChat and Photobooth can't find the iSight (built in) after using OS 9.

    Any more ideas?

    Are you talking about the Recovered Files folder itself, or the items in the folder? Cause the former is actually a feature of OS X (used to exist in OS 9 as well).

    The items in the folder. :rolleyes:

    The problem may have disappeared however. I repaired the permissions once more, after repairing the disk, and the trash can was empty after restart. :)
    I just hope this doesn't come back the next time I use OS 9, or something like that.

    Anyway, thanks for the help guys. :)
    I can always count on MacRumors. :D

    Damned. It returned when I restarted a second time. This is how it looks now:
