    Hi, first posting. I have an icon on my desk top. Standard windows type thing with what I believe is called a tilde (~)underneath it. I can't open whatever it is and when I delete it, it just comes back. I have virus checked it and it is okay but it annoys me. Any ideas please? I think it arrived when I went broadband.

    Welcome to the forums. :) Right click on it & choose properties. That will tell whether it is a shorcut going somewhere or a program. Let us know what you find.

    It says type of file - file. It says it is archive. Sorry it tells you very little really.
