    Hey, (new member)

    I went on to finder and clicked on my username (the one under applications, not sure its official name) and In that file I have the following folders:

    Desktop
    Logs
    readme.txt
    euc_state.json
    client.ini.json
    client.ini
    guide.ini
    Cache
    root.pem
    Downloads
    Libary
    Documents
    Pictures
    Music
    Movies
    Public
    Sites

    Now, I know some of them are normal but the files ending with 'json' 'ini' etc.. are kind of worrying me. If you could tell me what they are and how to hide/delete them would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    .json is a JavaScript filetype, .ini is generally found on Windows computers...Are you running Boot Camp on this computer by chance, or Parallels or VMWare Fusion?

    What about that network thingy?
    What applications have you installed?

    As a matter of fact I did, I started to download a trial of Photoshop which means you then have to install Akamai.

    I've uninstalled the Akamai download manager and the trial of photoshop (which didn't seem to want to download) but the files are still their, Is it safe If I delete them or is that too dodgy?

    Thanks.
