According to the Microsoft Knowledge Database a hidden file with an aut extension means that a download is in progress.

Do you happen to have a mouse with a scroll wheel? That's a little wheel between your mouse buttons. If you do and you happen to click the mouse in the window of a program like Excel the wheel will be able to be used for scrolling up and down in that application.

If you do the same trick in Internet Explorer (IE) the scroll wheel will enlarge or reduce your font size depending on whether you push the wheel away or pull it towards yourself.
