Hi ppl. This has happened twicw that i can see. I had a word docunent on the desktop. Last night another word document appeared but as a hidden file. The filenames were both the same apart from the duplicate had ~$ at the begining. I havnt opened this file so i dont actually know whats in it. Im running win xp pro sp1 with Norton antivirus which is fully updated and mcafee personal firewall plus.
Many thanks.

The ~$ file is almost certainly a harmless "scrap" created by Word when you edited the document.
