So i was looking in my trash and found a file named "Ferret_files" and found it to be odd... i dont remember delleating the file and dont have a clue where it came from. i set it on my desk top to have a look inside and i saw thumbnails from facebook and other files that i dont recognise.sadly i didnt see where the files came from before i pulled them out of the trash. so what i need to know from you guys is what the files are?
