Red Circle white "X" in task bar

Unread postby kimball77 » October 10th, 2008, 10:53 pm

Though it seems to only be annoying and make noises on the speakers and slow things down a bit- I would like to remove this from my computer. I got this after surfing the Internet. Some page I clicked on actually caused my computer to restart and everything else seemed ok, except for the red circle white "X". Here is the hijackthis scan log:

Due to lack of response this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
