  Hi Martha,
  Thanks for that url which said:   
  That "~" (tilde) file is most probably appearing as the result of installing 
the "April 2003, Cumulative Patch for Outlook Express (330994)". Microsoft is 
aware of the problem and is supposedly working on a fix. Many people are 
experiencing this problem and from what I've read about this problem that icon 
will also reappear when you reply to an e-mail and you have your Outlook 
Express set up to enter the persons e-mail address to your address book 
whenever you reply to an e-mail. You can either just put up with it or follow 
the uninstall directions for the patch at the link below.

  Since it's not doing any harm, I'll just tolerate it.
  Carl
   ps, I was sure off base with my thoughts that it was related to a virus scan.

    Hi, Elaine!

    Apparently this is caused by a glitch from a patch to OE, look here:
