    Periodically I have a file that shows up on the desktop identified only as the symbol "~" I delete it and then after random time frames it pops up again.

    Is this a security issue. I have passed the file past virus and it comes up negative. reading the file with Notepad shows uninteligible characters for the most part but also some e-mail adresses from my address book.

    Any information would be appreciated.
