Windows 7: Sticky Notes show @mith5456

Sticky Notes show @mith5456

I usually use sticky notes to keep some username information. One day I started my PC and i saw this text at the top of the sticky notes: @mith5456

Initially I thought it would be the work of my brother or could be remenants of a password. But then i noticed it on my Office PC, then on another PC too. I cant figure out the source and nothing on the internet about this.

This is not causing any sort of discomfort or anything of that sort but my curiosity is getting the better of me. Anyone here knows why this happens or noticed the same?

I would worry a bit if I saw this on my PC. I would run Malwarebytes straight away. Have you got an A/V software running and if so is it up to date?

I've used a 3M program before which had issues with multiple screens sometimes, so I was happy to see the new standard sticky app. I'm a bit disappointed with MS for letting this behave like any other app window - when I click the show desktop button, I'd like to see all my stickies that I...

Recently updated from Vista to 7 on 2 machines (both Lenovo tablet PC's). I had several pre-existing sticky notes and use the program often. When I try to launch sticky notes in 7, I get a "corrupt metadata" error message. Same thing on both machines. Need suggestions for a fix. Thanks.
