I have a red circle with a white X in the system tray that I cannot remove. It has also changed my screen resolution to 800x600 and has removed the tabs from the display properties dialogue box.

Here is a hijackthis log I just ran on my computer. I have also run AVG, malwarebytes, CSsreadder, ATF cleaner, combofix, smitfraudfix, bitdefender online scanner and Trend Micro Online scanner and nothing is removing this item. This Item is exactly in appearance to the Win32/FakeAlert.ADQ trojan, however none of the associated registry keys or removal tools seem to detect it or remove it.

After working on this all day I found this file in my Process Explorer and stoped it and the file was removed from the system tray. yaSmtray.exe. The following listed items were able to remove Background and other items related to this trojan but the system tray icon. Please let me know if this is all that remains of this bug. the line in the Hijackthis log is as follows.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [yaMAX\yaSmtray] C:\Program Files\Analog Devices\SoundMAX\yaSmtray.exe

This is an update. I was able to Search for the file yaSmtray.exe and delete it form the hard drive. I nuked it with PGP delete and it is now gone. I also had hijackthis fix the line above and rebooted the system. I rescanned the system with Hijack and the line item did not return. I then ran the following VBS script showalldisplaytabs-xp.vbs found at (hxxp://www.winhelponline.com/articles/38/1/Restore-missing-tabs-to-the-Display-properties-dialog.html) to resolve the problem of the missing display tabs in the Display Properties dialouge box. There was also the issue of the background image being set to yaSmtray.html in whitch i fixed by changeding to none and applying. It seems that the scanning of the system and the other malware, spyware and AntiVirus scanners got all the rest of the application but the above listed items.

I hope this helps anyone who needs assistance with the removal of this trojan.

This Item now links to the following website to have you download and pay for a file.

Thanks for your help
