~ File ?

Hi, from time to time i sometimes get a file on my desktop similar to a notepad file with a ~ under it. No name just the ~ symbol. I can't find reference to it or where it came from. Has anyone ever seen this before? And if so, how did you stop it from appearing.
Thanks.

You can't stop it from appearing but you can delete it. It is a bug in Outlook Express that causes it.

Yep! as VoG says, it happens occasionally, just throw it in the trash can.

I always get them after I have imported or exported my Windows address book
