Question

Starting Firefox writes a zero byte file to my desktop.

A few weeks ago I downloaded a file called Spanish Piece.wmv from a trusted source. It was a guitar instruction video. I have since deleted it. However, every time I start Firefox on my Windows 7 64-bit desktop, a zero-byte file named Spanish Piece.wmv gets written to my desktop. It will create a new one every time, and sometimes I have to go and delete a dozen or so of these files. Is there a batch file or startup file of some kind that this might have been written into? What do you suggest that I do to determine the cause of this problem? I would rather understand why it is happening rather than just make it go away by reinstalling and deleting all of my settings.
