I thought I removed the Trojan Downloader: win32/zlob but I have a new icon in my system tray. It is a question mark in a blue circle that flashes. It identifies it self as a “System Alert!” but when clicked it launches my internet browser and takes me to a web site to down load SpyDawn. How can I get rid of this? (I use XP)

BC has a Self-help Removal Guide for Spydawn. Follow the instructions and you should be able to remove it quickly:
