Hi Elaine,
That's the pits;  Microsoft tries to fix a problem and causes another one.  :-)

    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. 
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downloads/critical/330994/default.asp
    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:
