I suspect you have the 'show hidden files and folders' option turned on. Files with a tilde (~) at the end are usually temporary files used whilst the application is open. If the application crashes before these temporary files are removed then they will remain.

OK thanks. Explorer froze and had to use the Power off button to restart. I'm gussing this was the reason.
