That's the name of the current workbook, it's only there when you have the workbook open.

The options you are highlighting are also being taken from there.

If this file opening every time you start excel it sounds like you have saved a copy in the 'xlstart' folder. look for the option "at startup open all files in" and see if there's a copy of you're file in that folder
