Hi There :thumbsup:

I have read your post and I think it would be wise for you to post a HijackThis log for an expert to review. This "red x" is most certainly bad and there are a number of programs that could be responsible for it.

I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem.

As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis" log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having. Please be patient, and a HJT team member will help you to clean up your system

David
