    I am still plagued by a computer demon. There is a file in my STARTUP directory and I do not know from whence it came. It has two macros described below. And I cannot delete this file.

    Every time I open a new worksheet, it comes with macros from this errant file in the STARTUP. There are two macros: Auto_open and Ck_files. They're driving me crazy.

    Any thoughts or mere words of sympathy would be greatly appreciated.
