I've suddenly got this little icon in my taskbar, and can't get rid of it. When I left or right click on it, nothing happens, and no option to close, etc.

Any help getting rid of it, or finding out what it is, appreciated. Here's a screenie...

Just a rogue program/window, used to happen to me with Windows XP too.

But, if after a reboot if it still exists, then I would certainly run a spyware and malware check.

Malwarebytes

Consider running it in safe mode.

Okay, thanks guys. I watched the "Task Manager" a couple of times while it was booting, and I'm almost sure it's an .exe file called "ccsvchst.exe". (the little white thingy pops up during the booting process)

I googled it and it appears to be Norton related. And since I just did a fresh install of Norton 2010 a couple of days ago, it makes since.

Appreciate the help and advice!

Yeah, looks like Norton and the ccsvchst.exe file involved. Just for the heck of it, I checked Norton history and it was blocking a second instance of that file the same time I noticed the
icon pop up. Must just be a bug in Norton. But, I'll be sure and run some malware checks to play it safe. Thanks again...

I 'm not sure of the problem either but I normally go to majorgeeks.com for their other downloads - Mike posted Malwarebytes , I also use superantispyware.

Stumbled across this free program. Pretty cool...gives you a little more info about your running processes.

I used to use norton but too many problems with internet, and applications not working correctly, slowing down the computer, etc., switched to kaspersky and stopped having problems.

In my opinion Norton is very buggy . I would recomend Kaspersky, Nod32 , or free alternatives as avira, avast! and grisoft .

I honestly don't use them so dunno. I don't use anything, except common sense + 20 yrs experience on what to install and what not to

I have been using System Suite ver 10 for a number of years. Very satisfied. The AntiVirus has been excellent over the years, besides all the other bells and whistles.

Max,

Only use manually about once per month along with diskcleanup and defrag tools.
