Deleted files keep reappearing in Finder

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have 4 files that I've deleted and then emptied the trash, but the Finder keeps replacing them in my Downloads folder. Another aspect of this that puzzles me is that the files are empty, they show zero KB in size. I've opened them with Text Edit, added random text, saved, and deleted again. But the Finder still replaces them with empty files afterwards. I've tried rebooting the machine and it still doesn't help. I can't figure out how to get rid of these files. Does anyone know what's going on?

I'm using MacOS 10.5.8 on a Macbook Pro 2GHz Intel Core Duo.
