    Files in my trash that I didn't put there.
    I've got an iMac5, Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.16 GHz and lately it's been placing files into my trash that I didn't put there. Here's an example of file names that have appeared:

    20101021-1337309.plist
    20101021-133820.stats
    20101022-102113.json

    Almost all the files have these numbers, the suffix changes (xml, log, txt. mfasl, sqlite, dylib). Any ideas why my computer is doing this and how I can stop it?
    Sometimes it's placing hundreds at a time.

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 15" 2014, 2.2GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 250GB SSD, OSX 10.9.5 - iPhone 5s 16gb
    suffix sqlite is to do with SQL databases, .mfasl is to do with mozilla firefox etc, DYLIB file extension is an Xcode Dynamic Library file. They are pretty much something to do with a rpogram you may use for web design or app design maybe?
