Anyone know about an "iserror.txt" file that randomly pops up in different spots? I would give additional info on what's in the files, but I deleted all of them before posting. For the record, I have recently ran Spybot S&D. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Nate

Although I have no idea what they are, it doesn't appear that they're malicious at all. They seem to be an error log created by legit programs; I've seen references to the fact that Photoshop is one of those programs.

If they come back, look at the contents of one of the files. I'm sure one of members who's into programming could say for sure, but if it looks like the following I pretty sure you don't have anything to worry about virus-wise:

I did a bit more searching, and although I still haven't found out exactly what those files are, what I did find makes me 99.999% sure that they're "safe".

If you want to Google around for yourself, search for the filename "iserror.log" as well as "iserror.txt"; you'll find tons of iserror.log files in online archives, and they appear to be chronological listings of exactly what you're finding in your iserror.txt files.
