Neither of these programs put icons in the system tray. If you had the paid version of Ad-Aware, that would come with Ad-Watch which does place an icon there. Ad-Aware free is an on-demand scanner and doesn't run unless you run it. SpywareBlaster simply puts code into the computer to keep spyware from getting on the computer. It really doesn't 'run' at all.
