I have several blanks,and don't know for sure what they are. I've tried deleting them,but they keep coming back. Two of them have "Helix cookie file. This is a generated file. Do not edit" The other is "Royale"with rows and rows of jibberish. I have run my entire arsonal and nothing gets rid of it. I have winxp sp2.I have paid version of Ewido.Ccleaner,Avast,Win.Defender,Ad-Aware,Registery Mechanic. Nothing helps.I tried Move on Boot, and almost wiped out everything on my computer! Won't do that one again! Can anyone give me a clue as to what this is, and what to do about it? Thank you

These blanks are all on my desktop. I think one has to do with realplayer, because it has real.vitalstream.com false/ and a lot of numbers and the other has http://www.netscape.com/newsref/std/cookie-spec.html. They both have "this is a generated file. Do not edit.The Royale one is just rows and rows (probably 20 or 30) of jumbled numbers and letters!? Thats about as specific as I can get as I am totally ignorant about these things. I hope this helps.....Maggie

Sounds like downloaded files you downloaded to your desktop.

Right click on them and choose properties.

What are the file extensions -

Icons? Shortcuts maybe?
