A friends husband had a jpeg of a naked woman on his desktop that she found and he said he didnt know how it got there and didnt download it. Is that possible?

How could that happen? I thought downloads required an action on the part of the user.

Most everything sent to the computer is temporarily stored in cache files. Advertising, Malware, RAT (Remote Access Trojan), unknown/unauthorized computer access are a few that immediately come to mind.

I agree it could be a virus.
