    Hey, I decided to reinstall Leopard, so I booted with the Leopard DVD and in disk utility erased the disk with zero-out space, so it was all properly formatted, installed Leopard, did all the updates and now this shows up when I open my HDD icon.


    What are those?!? Are those Temps from the updates? Can I delete them? I never had those before..

    so I'm guessing that you just need to type

    defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles NO

    into terminal
