Myster " ~ " appears on Desktop

  Border View 09:57 01 Dec 03

I run Windows 98SE with IE6 and OE6. Every now and then a mystery icon appears on my desk top its an " ~ " above the windows logo. If I click on it, it asks what program I want to open it in. I don't so I send it to the recycle bin.

Does anyone have any ideas what this might be. I have AVG and Zone Alarm.
