I have an issue I am hoping all you very nice & much more knowledgeable folks can help me with. I never got into the back workings of my system, that is why I have a Mac- it just works (most of the time)
I am running OS 10.8 on a older Uni-body Macbook (not pro)- not sure if that is even relevant. Anyway, I was downloading some files & the system locked up. I rebooted & now it puts empty icons on my desktop. They are for the files I was downloading when it crashed. They are all zero bytes. I can delete them a hundred times & they come back.
