Annoying Icon

  Brice 10:41 24 Aug 2006

Hi everyone
Can anyone tell me how to remove an annoying icon in the task bar.
I downloaded a screensaver and a programme called SpywareQuake has placed an icon in the task bar which keeps flashing and telling me that my system has been affected. Of course it is not. The software company is trying to convince me to buy its product.
I have tried "change/ remove", from control panel but it´s not listed and tried to right click on the icon but the prompt that tells me of the infection keeps poping up and recommending that I should download its programme
Your help would be most appreciated

[note: I haven't used this myself]. Interestingly, one hits of softwares you can download to remove this is advertised on SpywareQuake's own website!! Bet it costs!!!
