If I click 'My Computer' , double click 'C' Drive , there is an item here called '23990098.$$$'.When I right click and choose 'Properties' it says:- Type of file $$$ , unknown application , size 0 bytes , size on disk 0 bytes , opens with unknown application , and it is ticked as an archive.What in the name of jumping jelly fish is this and can I get rid of it , I don't like the look of it !

Thanks in advance.

Since it is 0 bytes, not a lot of space to be saved by deleting it. Nothing to worry about in my view.

Thanks for the link but it still doesn't tell me a lot about what it is or what program is using it .

It is a temporary file. Delete it and it will go in the Recycle Bin. If your 'puter is still working a day or so later, delete it from the bin.
