Icon removal

  colwoo 17:08 10 Apr 2003

I have an unwanted icon on my taskbar on oldish laptop computer using Windows 95. It is a blue question mark in a yellow box. It is not a programme. It doesn't open with double left click. Right click brings up box with show start page, update and hide. I have tried Spyware software to remove it and other methods to try to remove it without success. Any suggestions?

It is most likely to be loading at startup (obviously enough!) so to disable it use Mile Lin's startup control panel - click here for details. This will sit in your control panel and allow you to decide what should start up when you boot.
