  I have WindowsME. Right now I don't have it because just yesterday I deleted
  it again and it always comes back after a while.
  Sorry Sandi, I hope you don't mind me interfering in your question.

  > What version of windows are you running ?? Also any chance you could zip
  it and send it to me off list I can try and look at it .. I have the same
  thing but it is not the Window icon <I changed all my system icons> and I am
  running XP .. For me it turns out to be a copy of my Address book .. It
  doesn't seem to happen all the time though ..
