    I opened my home folder today and found 11, blank, zero kb text files showing names like:

    %80D%9Fb%8B%83N%B0UY%9AH%C296%A2%A2%AC%C5[u%F2%E1Tm$%9A%CC(%BF%84%9B!g%B2-
    ň%9EA%82 %9B%C5RJ

    Info shows it as a text file and they all were show the same origination date 3jun2011. Before I toss them, does anyone have an idea what could be generating these? Thanks!

    It looks like URL encoding.... I'd just trash 'em.

    I'll put them in the trash and restart and see if everything works before I toss them. Thanks!
