Strange file - is it a virus?

  peter. 12:41 29 Jul 03

I am recently getting a file put on my desktop at different times that is simply labelled "~".
It has not three leeters following it and is generally 200k in size.
It seems to be generated when I go into Outlook Express to check my Emails, and looking at it using Notepad, I can make out text in it that is my Outlook Address book entries.
I do run SOPHOS Virus checker, but its not fully up to date at the moment.
I run Windows XP Home edition, and keep up to date with the Microsoft security downloads.
I have deleted this file before and thought nothing of it, but it keeps re appearing, does anyone have any ideas??
