Question for you PC tech guys...

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

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

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.

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.

Re: Question for you PC tech guys...

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