Unscrupulopus website occasionally downloads unwanted exe file onto my desktop and puts icon in my system tray. I know how to get rid of the exe file and clean up the registry. How can I get the icon out of the system tray without rebooting?

Right click on it and see if there is an 'exit' or 'close' option?

Id advise you should get a anti-virus & firewall asap.as it could be a hacker trying to get info or putting virus in.
