    I opened up the download folder stack on my dock, and I noticed 2 random .exe files that I didn't download. I opened the download folder in the finder and they weren't there... I could only see them when I open up the download folder stack in the dock. I tried clicking the one of the files but it said file not found.

    I ended up restarting my computer and they were gone after that. I don't have bootcamp or windows installed on this computer btw.

    Can some one explain that? lol

    Just random crap downloaded from some site, or even a popup. Trash it and move on, it can't hurt your Mac. :cool:

    That was the weird thing though, I couldn't trash it or even open it, the file didn't exist... it only showed up in the stack.

    It only disappeared when I restarted my computer. It probably won't hurt my computer, but I just found it strange, and I'm trying to figure out where it came from lol
