    I have a problem with an icon that is reappering all the time after deleting it. It doesn't seem to do any serious dangerous harm to my computer (like deleting files and so on) but it's really really annoying...

    I repeatedly get an icon on with a big X on it, and with the word "default" under it... Another thing that somehow have something to do with this is that sometimes when I'm on the internet, my internet explorer suddently change page to ""... Is this some kind of worm or trojan? Do someone know why this happens and even better...HOW TO REMOVE THIS ****...??


    I use both Spybot and Ad-Aware 6 but neither seem to find anything...

    I have: Win XP, Spybot, Ad-aware, Internet explorer 6, Norton Antivirus 2002 (weekly updated).
