    Mystery folders

    Could anyone help me with this?
    I've had two mystery folders appear on my desktop. They are titled with my first name in capital letters.
    I can't open them and I can't delete them. When I try to send them to the trash, the eject icon comes up where the trash bin is, but I can't eject them because I there is nothing to eject!
    I've tried to get the info but there is no created or modified thing, and the get info window doesn't load fully cos the rotating circle just goes on and on.

    I'm puzzled - and a bit worried in case something dodgy is going on.
    Please help!!

    ?? Have you rebooted?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Thankyou so much! I can't believe it was so simple, that's amazing.
    Thanks again,
