Windows 7: Strange File on Startup

Strange File on Startup

On Start Up my wife's laptop has suddenly started asking what programme I want to use to open a file name = her user name.

When I open it in Notepad I see different texts, but this is typical:

Interface List
13...4c 0f 6e 09 5e 75 ......Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter
11...60 eb 69 71 73 95 ......Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller

It isn't a big issue, as cancelling the 'open file' dialogue box just makes it go away, but its just annoying me.
Anyone seen this before, or has advice as to stopping it from happening?
