I recently noticed a new icon in the application tray?,bottom right of screen, its the number 9 white on a black background. Right and left clicking it has no effect, can anyone please tell me what it is and what I should do about it. I haven't loaded any new software recently; only updates.

Re: icons

Hi Jimb43,

For Xp :

click on Start - Run - type "msconfig" - click on the "Startup" tab

For Vista/Win 7:

Click start - start search - and type "msconfig"

See what programs are checked. If you're not sure what a program is, google the "Startup Item" name. You can find out the icon and the process running. And if you find any malicious programs try to uncheck that and restart the computer to check whether the ico nstill displays.
