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.
     ps, I was sure off base with my thoughts that it was related to a virus

      Hi, Elaine!

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