Welcome to Mac-Forums

It is interesting that you can't do a Get Info on it..if all the UI options seem to be yielding no results, you might have to switch to the command line..

Figure out where the file is siting first, and the open up the Terminal from Applications->Utilities. Once Terminal is opened, try:
Code:
cd <path/to/where/file/is/located>
ls -l 9BE91000
file 9BE91000
This will give you the permissions on the file and what type of file it is. Set permissions with:
Code:
chmod 755 9BE91000
Now you should have access to it in the UI, so in Finder try a Get Info or opening it. If neither of those do anything, then head back to the terminal and try:
Code:
head 9BE91000
This will try to show you a little bit of the file, if it looks like it's all gibberish, and you know you didn't create this file, you can delete it. First try deleting it by dragging to the trash and emptying it. If that fails, then from the command line:
Code:
rm -rf 9BE91000
Warning: If you are unfamiliar with the Terminal or commands, be sure you double-triple check them before typing them and ensure that you understand what it is you are doing and where. You don't want to make this worse than it is by breaking something from the Terminal..
