Hello,

Whenever I access the Internet using IE, a Windows icon (one of those default things with a tlide for a name) pops up on the desktop. When I delete it, it just comes back the next time I go online. Can anyone see what may be the problem from this HijackThis log:

The mysterious "tilde file" on your desktop is the backup made of your address book whenever you make a change to it (the address book).

It's a known glitch created by some Windows update or other which tells the backup file...which has always been made...to save to the wrong place...the Desktop instead of the OE folder.

Just delete and go make sure you have all the latest MS patches. I think a subsequent update solved the problem.
