    Hi all,

    I have a question that I am hoping someone can answer.

    I was sorting through my downloads folder this evening when I noticed that it contained some documents I had never downloaded before. One was someone's homework assignment (I searched it, and it was online), and the other was avatar sized images.

    Anyone have a theory as to how these are ending up in my download folder without me voluntarily downloading them?

    Thank you in advance.

    What browser are you using? Does anyone else have access to your Mac?

    I use google chrome....I don't think anyone has access to my computer- only I use it, and I don't have a MobileMe account which I hope means no one can remote access any files. Still a little confused and nervous though as to how this is happening.
