In the past few weeks, I get this ~file on my desktop. To open it, I suppose to go the internet to find what program created it. I don't, I just delete it. When I checked out the
properties, it says created that day. There aren't any extensions or anything. I have asked several people about it and they said that they have gotten it also, but they just delete it and they don't what it is either. Can someone help? Thank you.

I have had this, also. If my memory serves me correctly, it is a side-effect of some particular Windows Updates, and has in fact reoccurred.

It is not evil, and generally goes away when the shortcut is deleted.
