    When I boot up, TextEdit opens with a file called f_000103. It looks like it's actually binary because it's all characters and gibberish. Not actually readable text. I googled "f_000103" and it says it's a Windows virus. I'm confused. Not sure where it came from, if it's a problem, or how to get rid of it.

    The file turned out to be in the library/caches/google/chrome/cache folder. And somehow it got added to my startup programs. Weird that if suddenly happened, as I haven't used Chrome in over a week. But I just took the file off of my startup programs list, and also deleted Chrome and that cache file. I never really used Chrome anyway. Weird though.
