  1. I read the topic
    http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic36910.html
    and it never came to a conclusion. Also it never addressed the problem with whatever this thing is on the toolbar

    and it has this annoying popup

    I have removed all the virus exept for this thing...

    Any Ideas?

    Any help would be great.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go HERE and follow the steps as outlined.

    Post a fresh HJT log, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Are you sure that is a full HJT log? It seems very short.

    I can`t see anything nasty in that log.

    Regards Howard :)

    I agree... That is why I am so confused. I went through and cleaned it all out. It had a lot of nasty stuff earlier. But now all that remains is that Icon on the taskbar and the annoying popup! I am lost as to how it is still working. I checked every recource I know and that thing is still there... It doesnt "link" to anything, and right clicking on it does nothing. It is just there. About every 5 min it gives me that red popup??? I do not understand at all...?
