Icon on desktop after using OE 6

  Rhuddlan 17:20 08 Jul 2004

After a friend of mine uses Outlook Express 6 to check her e mails or add contatcs to her address book, an error message appears saying something about the memory not been able to be written or something like that, I also get that error message, anyone know of a solution to stop it? Anyway the problem is that a icon on the desktop titled ~ appears on the desktop whenever she shuts OE down, any ideas? I remember having this problem last year, but can't remember what the solution was. Regards, Rhuddlan.

It's a tilde and the shortcut can be deleted without worry.

From what I can gather SP2 will fix this when released, I'll wait until then, it's only mildly annoying. TR
