  • ya'll this thing is driving me nuts.  I have gotten rid of the icons on my desktop, and uninstalled through control panel.  I even deleted the empty folders in my program files.  By the way the desktop icons show "wayofprotection.com" on mouseover.  What I can't seem to do is get rid of the flashing icon in my tray, the one on the lower right corner of the screen.  I don't know exactly how this got on my computer, my boyfriend used it while I was out of town, and he won't show me where on the web he was when it popped up because he was birthday shopping.  So I can't even go look to see what he possibly clicked into by mistake.  Can someone please tell me how to get rid of the flashy thing?  Oh and Spybot Search and Destroy caught it the minute I ran a scan, and helped to get rid of some of it too.  Thanks in advance.  Almost forgot to say I am using Windows XP, not Vista, and I don't have OneCare, but now I am thinking about getting it in addition to the stuff I already have.
