    Everyday I get a folder on my desktop "~". Even if I don't use my address book in OE
    6. It pops up anyway. Any cures for this?

    just right click on your OE shortcut

    then go to properties

    and where it says start in

    enter : "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express"

    or whatever your appropriate path is

    note: the backup file "~" will still be in your OE folder

    but will at least not clutter up your desktop

    When I tried to do this I receive this message. "Unable to save changes to Outlook
    Express.ink. Access denied".

  4. Make a new shortcut and try it again.

    Go to General Properties and unselect ReadOnly

  6. If you open it in Notepad you'll see it's a copy of your address book. It's
    caused by a bug in one of the MS Updates, not sure which one. It's harmless
    but if you install most recent updates it goes away.

    I always install new critical updates, but it doesn't go away
