Photoshop: Leaving cache icons and Clean Listener.jsx file on desktop

After I finish a session with Photoshop CS5.1, it leaves behind many icons on my desktop that say cache 000000+3digits with the extension .dat. Why? How can I remedy this?

Also, it leaves behind a Clean Listener.jsx file on the desktop. It is very annoying to have to clean up my desktop with this new little twist in our relationship.

Advice Please!!!!!!!

Sounds to me like you have Script Events turned on. Are you aware that you've turned on Script Events? If not, here's how you access it:

Select File>Scripts>Script Events Manager...

It should look something like this:

You can probably uncheck "Enable Events to Run Scripts/Actions" - click OK. Quit Photoshop, clean up your desktop - then relaunch Photoshop and see if the problem goes away.
