I have an unknown file called "~" which appears on my desktop every few days. It is always 18okb in size. I delete it when it appears but what is it? Which program creates it? (I am running Windows XP Home.)
the tidle file appearing on your desktop is your outlook express address book.it appears when you have made any changes to the address book like adding a new contact etc and then close outlook express.
remame it with a .wab extension and you will see this is what it is.
you can safely delete it each time it appears.should be a fix from MS soon hopefully.
