I am on Win XP. I have relised that for some reason when I click all programs the 'new program installed' icon comes up. And it also seems to be on Lavasoft Adware free ( i have had this for the last 1 month or so). I know I can turn off the 'new program installed', but i want it there to tell me if any other admins have installed anythink, and ideas how to reset?

If you open the new prog from the start menu and run it for a while the "New Program Installed" reminder should stop showing.

Is this not happening ?

You can always switch the option off.

Control panel>Start bar & task menu>Start menu>customise>advanced then unckeck the "Highlight newly installed programs" box.
