It may something to do with the way Windows/Office works.

When you create a new file or open an existing one, it creates a weird 
hidden file with ~ at the beginning of  the name, then deletes this when 
the file is saved/closed.

There may be some parameters you can set to hide this behavior, but I 
don't know what they might be... sorry.
