I recently got infected with what I believe was SpywareQuake. After several virus scans I figured out I was using Spyware Dr 3.5 instead of 4.0. Following the upgrade, I believe I have eradicated the virus. My only problem thus far seems to be that the virus had removed my internet connection icon from the taskbar(a wireless connection icon for my linksys reciever). My friend was using the computer when it got the virus, he said the icon simply "vanished" off the screen. After the virus was deleted via spyware doctor the icon still seems to be missing. Any suggestions?

The icon may have been disabled. Go to Start > Programs and use the shortcut for your linksys receiver to launch the program's main menu. Then look for options to see if there is a feature to enable show the icon in the task bar or system tray. If that option is not there try searching the program's help files.

If no luck, reinstalling the program's software may correct this.
