    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.

        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
