    I have a problem that may be related to SpywareBlaster. For several months now, a small white box will occasionally flash on the task bar at the bottom of my desktop homepage. It's as though a program is trying to open, but cannot. I don't know if it's spyware & SpywareBlaster is constantly eliminating it, or if it's just a glitch. I thought it was related to a program called HP ORGANIZE on my computer, but I deleted that program, and the little white box still appears on occasion. It pops up several times an hour, not at regular intervals. I've tried waiting for it to appear and clicking on it, but have had no success. I think I've clicked on it a couple of times, but nothing opens up. Any ideas?

    To eliminate Spywareblaster....open the program and select Disable All Protection and see if the white box goes away. If the box stays....We can eliminate Spywareblaster and look in another direction. We also might at that time consider moving the thread to a more appropriate Forum so as to give you the proper help.

    I disabled SpywareBlaster, but the white box keeps appearing sporadically in the task bar. So, it appears it has nothing to do with the SpywareBlaster program. What else can I try?

    I would suggest you take a look at your running processes when the white box is not present. Then when the white box is present....make note of the newer processes running and we can possibly then look at a few of those for a possible cause.

    Since this is indeed not a Spywareblaster issue I have moved the thread to a more appropriate Forum.
