    There are weird files that keep showing up in my trash. They don't go away when I empty the trash, but they do if i try and drag them out of the trash or hit "ctrl i" to get info.

    These are the names of the files. Any ideas?

    I checked and show hidden files is off. I tried emptying my recycle bin on the windows partition and that didn't help. It had never happened until a week or two ago and I can't think of anything that I installed around that time.
