"if it's in question, you've learned a lesson"

"If you're not sure where it came from, toss it in the trash drum."
Ok, ok, that was pretty bad.

don't want to get you paranoid, but feds may have attached a program to porn pict files you may have downloaded. it may be program that kicks on from time to time, sending feds you ip info and details about the contents of your hard drive.
also, may be a virus, trojan, or worm...dunno.
run the virus scan, then run norton system works or norton utilities if you have it.
remember rule..."when in doubt, throw it out."
get rid of that file as soon as you can if you don't know what it does.
stay safe,The impossible takes more time,and costs more money.

Zip it up into a zip file. If nothing happens over a few days, then delete it. If it returns or a similar named number file returns then it's probably a virus or trojan.
If curiosity is getting the best of you then view it in text editor and see if you can figure anything out about it. Look for anything in English, especially near the top or botton of the file.
