I found a file called Null in my C drive. I deleted it and restarted my computer and it didn't seem like anything happened. Does anyone know what this file is?

Did you run a batch file on your computer recently that you downloaded off the Internet? Or some other security program that you may have downloaded?

I'm not sure. I had a hardware problem with my laptop and sent it to a repair depot and after getting it back I found the file there. I'm not sure if it was there before I sent it. The only security programs I have downloaded are those from the Am I Infected forum and standard security ones (e.g. MBAM, Winpatrol)

Its most likely one of those that made the file. I would not be concerned.
