    thankyou for your fast reply, unfortunately i cant answer that as i didnt install it myself, i think it was from an ubuntu cd, its just odd ,like no record of me having been there the day before. thankfully my important files are elsewhere anyway but its still annoying, thanks for reply .

    What kind of downloads? Are they from third party sites or are you referring to the Software Center?

    Do you login with a password or are you auto logged in?

    you state you're running ubuntu 13.04 BUT are you running it natively off the internal hard drive OR are you running it off a usb stick maybe?
