does anyone know anything about this icon. What program (spyware ?) install it or where it comes from. I've searched all over but I can't find any information.
Thanks in advance

The file appearing on your desktop with the filename ~, commonly known as a tilde, is a backup of your Windows Address Book.

Thanks to nasdaq for the link. It explaned everything.
Does anyone know about a toolbar called "roadthatgrid"?
It appears as a toolbar choice and comes up looking like a MSN tool.
Thanks - Mark

Thanks for the suggestion. I will do that.
My main intent was to thank the group for the ~ info and thought of the toolbar deal at the last minute.
