    I've found a file with the file name "^.~" (as in file name "^" and file extension "~") in my Win7 C: root directory. It's just my luck that searching for this in any search engine brings up no results, so I can't get an answer that way.

    From what I can tell, the file wasn't already there when I first installed Win7, but I'm not sure if it might just be a part of another program (and harmless), a part of a Win7 Update or if it's some sort of harmful file that I should get rid of ASAP.

    If any specs are needed to get an answer, I'll provide them.

    Thanks for any help that can be given. :)
