Anyone know what ~ means on desktop?

    Every once in a while I get a folder on my desktop that only displays the
    symbol ~ underneath it. If I check the folder properties there is no
    extension named and the file is identified only as: ~

    Then I opened the file in DOS and it was approximately 200 kb and was a mix
    of "machine language" (computer programming syntax) and email addresses from
    some of my emails I have received.

    It goes away when I run TRACKS ERASER but comes back at odd intervals.

    Any ideas? Thanks!
