Unwanted information in Epub files

After converting some books to epub using Calibre, i get random:

file://C:\Documents and Settings\ccf\Desktop\Author etc

inserted in the text.

Is there any way i can stop this happening during conversion by altering something in the conversion settings?

Post this question in the Calibre forum. They're very helpful

I'm not sure I understand, but it looks like you should remove
headers and footers from pdf.

That sounds like a good idea. I've seen these too, and always with conversions from PDF. What I've done in the past is to use Sigil to edit out these strings from the ePub. I've also seen page numbers come in from PDF, too, and the RegExp in Sigil is handy for stripping them out.
