Are you sure it isn't RND, that can come from quite a few applications, AutoCAD, some VMware products and software that creates hashes for encryption - Do you have a torrent client with encryption forced?

I am sure I don't have any of those programs, I even checked my control panel for the installed programs and I don't see those on the list

The file type is FILE when I put my cursor over it it says it is 9 bytes when it is really 4 kb it was created 9/7/2012 at 9:13:39 P.M. modified and accessed at the same times as when it was created. Attributes: A. All scans said clean, but I still don't like it that this file is visible and I did not use, download or create it, something's fishy.

I killed it with the bin, it was definitely END.file, I'm not blind, anyways, it's gone and I guess I'll scan to see if after deleting it, it created a trojan. I'll post the results of the scanners after they are done.
