Hello! Thanks for the help fixing explorer. My next problem is the following. My computer runs windows xp and I used the excellent instructions from this site (rkill.com and Malwarebytes) to remove Malware Defense and some fake porn icons (other malware) two days ago. After that I still had pop ups so ran "Super antispyware 4.32.1000. I installed IE explorer 8. My computer seems to be running better overall except often right when I start up a white box appears over the lower right corner of the screen. It has a little red x in the upper left corner - like it is a program trying to run that is not loading properly. Nothing I do seems to get it to go away but it will go away on it's own and reappear again from time to time.

1. How do I get rid of it and
2. Is this the sign there is a bigger problem still lurking?

Thanks! This site is great. I can't believe how much I have learned here already. Last time we had these kinds of problems we paid $100's and still had mediocre results.

Hmm not sure of what the tray is. It is above the icons above the grey bar that is over the blue bar with icons. The box is about 5 inches tall by 3.5 wide.
