Strange new file on desktop?

I have a strange file that appears on my desktop periodically...it has a window type logo and when opened in Word it looks like a lot of gobbledegook
all zeros with an odd letter or number.
Using win 98 and it appears when I have just closed my browser...it seems to be called "~" yes or simply ~ does anyone know what it is?
Thanks in advance

If you open it in Notepad (or Word), you might be able to see among the gobbledegook some of the contacts in your address book. It's a funny file created when you update or change your address book. You can safely delete it.
