Did you follow the links in my last post?I tried it and It didn't work it just said "The item 15085_3.wmv.crdownload cant be moved to the Trash because it cant be deleted."
No, it can't be a virus, since no Mac OS X viruses exist. Macs are not immune to malware, but no true viruses exist in the wild that can run on Mac OS X, and there never have been any since it was released 10 years ago. You cannot infect your Mac simply by visiting a website, unzipping a file, opening an email attachment or joining a network. The only malware in the wild that can affect Mac OS X is a handful of trojans, which cannot infect your Mac unless you actively install them, and they can be easily avoided with some basic education, common sense and care in what software you install. Also, Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Lion have anti-malware protection built in, further reducing the need for 3rd party antivirus apps.Is it a virus or something?
I dont know and I dont know how it got on my desktop to begin with. I was turning on my computer and I noticed it there.It is a partial bit torrent download using Chrome, yes? Ask Google, try Google Search. It is their screwed up browser causing this.
I cannot get any info on the file when I click "Get Info" nothing comes up and with the terminals those were the first things I tried and it didn't work (but i dont know if I did them correctly).So you restarted your computer?
Checked the permissions of the file?
Checked to make sure the file isn't locked?
Checked to make sure the file isn't in use?
Used the recommended Terminal commands?
