    I've run into a weird phenomenon...

    Every time I open the terminal, instead of giving me the shell prompt, I get a unix program running in console mode. Is there any way to keep this from happening? I hate having to kill the process every time I want to just get to the shell.

    Oh, and when I move the program and start the terminal, i get this in the terminal window:

    Code:
    Travs-Mac:~ flux$ /Users/flux/Downloads/tt++; exit
    -bash: /Users/flux/Downloads/tt++: No such file or directory
    logout
    [Process exited - exit code 127]
    ...after which, I can't type anything.

    For starters, trying deleting file /Users/yourname/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Terminal.plist. You'll lose any Terminal preference settings.

    You might want to check for rootkits. That makes me a bit edgy.
