Pre-comps are being auto-filled with an old file

I use After Effects Pro 2019 for work for some relatively basic animations and have come across a very annoying issue within the past week. Anytime I create or import a pre-comp, any space within that pre-comp that isn't filled with a graphic, video, etc, is filled with a still of an old avi clip that I don't even have imported into my current composition. When I open the pre-comp, I don't see any other files.

Could anyone help me understand if I pressed an odd button somewhere along the way or if this is a bug that can be fixed? Let me know if you need any additional information about my settings.

Choose Edit > Purge > All Memory & Disk Cache to purge the contents of all RAM caches (like the existing All Memory command) and the contents of the disk cache (like the existing Empty Disk Cache button in the Media & Disk Cache preferences).

If you create the animation entirely from vector objects then resolution won't be a problem.
