So if I open it in notepad it can't infect my comp? Also, how would I put it up for you to check? I'm just very curious about this and I don't know how it would have been installed because I haven't even used the drive very often and I keep all my stuff up to date. I use Win 7

Windows 7 like Windows Vista has a function where it will use part of a fashdrive as temp storage if the computer doesn't have memory above a certain limit, in Vista it was 2GB, if you had less memory than this a flashdrive would be used as temporary memory. I am not sure what the limit is in Win 7, but the feature is still there, that could be where the files are coming from, I would say you are fine with deleting them, it will not activate any virus.
The size sounds about right for a temporary memory file too.
