Mine is up to 642 kb right now.. I keep deleting it, clean out with WindowWasher prior to booting, and it occasionally comes back.. I have had it a while.. I guess I thought it was a file from my AVG, ZoneAlarm, WindowWasher, or Spybot S&D.. I also run MaxMem and MemDefrag each time I am on-line.. Do you have any of these programs? I have looked all over to find info on it, and I cannot find anything mentioning it.. Otherwise, it has the same properties as what you have stated.. One thing I have thought it 'might' be.. is someone attempting to hack into my machine.. or had previously, and left a 'marker'.. Have you had any encounters with a 'hacker'? ----- Original Message ----- From: "mep" <biff15923@xxxxxxxxx> To: <24hrsupporthelpdesk@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>; <24hoursupport@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Friday, August 29, 2003 2:39 PM Subject: [24hoursupport] ~ What is this Please ANYONE !!! > > > > ~ << ok see the little thing on my left of this sentence.... there > is a well it looks to be a window logo file page on my desktop... it wasn't > there before today .... ok what it says in property is : > ok pg at the top with that little thingy ~ under for a name...... > > Properties: > > Type : File > Location: C:WINDOWS\Desktop > Size 191KB (195,634bites), 196,608 bytes used > > MS-DOS name: ~ > Created Thrusday, Aug 28,2003 10:12:15PM > Modified Thursday, Aug 28,2003 10:12:16 PM > Accessed: Friday, August 29,2003 > > Attributes 4 squares with Archive square has a check > mark...... > > Now , can any one tell me what the hell this is ????
