Strange file in C:\Windows

Hi,
I'm using the RTM with the good hash, and I just noticed a file in c:\Windows, named:

˜

It contains:

[KeyList]
Count=0

Anyone else have this? It seems to have been created on the date that I installed.

Wher did you get the image, and were any language packs used?

Image was the x64 Zukona, with the hash matching the technet post.

No language packs installed, although I use danish input language.

It looks strange. I don't have that file.

Weird indeed. I might try a reinstall just to see if it pops up again.

Sorry for getting back so late! The file is not present upon reinstalling. I will keep a lookout for it, as it may have appeared after I installed a program (haven't installed them all yet).

I am getting another strange behaviour though (lol). The first time i press the "show desktop" button next to the clock, after the system has booted up, it plays the windows startup sound. =)

Did you scanned your pc for viruses?

There's no viruses unless they are included in official drivers etc. That's all I've installed. OS and drivers, messenger, firefox and addons (noscript, adblock).

Edit: Doing a scan with Mbam now, will do one with avira next.

You could have a virus in some of your personal files.

True, but I have not even touched any of them, they are on a seperate drive =)

The scan is still running.

Edit: well nothing with mbam, avira won't update (slow as hell, trying to work it out)
