System Live Protect Icon In System Tray And Internet Explorer Error Report

Q: System Live Protect Icon In System Tray And Internet Explorer Error Report

Hello to whomever responds to this thread. This is the first time I've used one of these help forums and my knowledge of computer lingo is limited, but I'd be greatful if you could help me with this problem.

A little while ago I downloaded an application which turned out to be a 'trojan', or so I believe. Upon opening it I received an error report, and my antivirus program (Symantec) informed me that several items with .trojan in their name had been detected and deleted. I was also advised to reboot my computer, and after doing so I became aware of a little red shield icon in my system tray. Clicking it brings up a question which reads:

"Would you like to update your security software and download System Live Protect?"

I have not clicked yes because I believe this may be a problem. Furthermore, whenever I open Internet Explorer, there is an error report: "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close."

I am unsure as to whether these two problems are related, but that is my suspicion. Is there anything that can be done?

Thanks for reading

there is a red shield on my tray that pops up with a baloon warning me that a "spyware infection has detected !". every 5 minutes or so, an additional message pops up that tells me to download a program to deal with this infection: "Windows is infected with spyware would you like to let windows download the most up to date protection?". when left or right clicked, a messagebox appears with the message: "Would you like to update your security software and download System Live Protect?". furthermore, when I turn off the comptuer, a messagebox appears to show that "ipmon.exe" faild to initiate because windows is shutting down. sorry if this information is kinda, vague, but I am not really sure what I should be sharing... I use nod32, superantispyware free edition, adaware free edition, spybot search and destroy and sygate personal firewall. please tell me what else you need to know. thank you in advance.Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 5:51:19 PM, on 6/11/2007Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)Running processes:C:\WINNT\System32\smss.exeC:\WINNT\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINNT\system32\services.exeC:\WINNT\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINNT\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINNT\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINNT\system32\svchost.exeC:\Program Files\Sygate\SPF\smc.ex...

I am havig some system tray icon problems after installing anti-virus and spyware software. Looking for a fix for the disappearing system tray icons at initial start-up. Quick fix--log off and on again--icons reappear where they should. I am told that this disappearing activity is due to a Windows XP "BUG". What a problem! Any ideas for a secure, lasting fix out there? After the spyware and antivirus software installation, the computer star-up time is now really SLOW too. The software launches seems to be in conflict with each other, or something. Have emachine--T3406, Windows XP Home 2002, Service Pack 2. 1.23 GB RAM.

SP2 Just aboard my XP home. One of 2 problems ccured. The one for this forum occurs upon logging in. My UPS system tray icon won't load up and generates the error shown below. How can I get it back?
I see in the Customization System tray section there are 2 areas... 1. current items, the 2nd being listed under past items.... no idea what that means!! well,the folder you see in the print screen in that section that says 59% should be the icon that shows in the 'current' section-with its own "energizer"[UPS] icon. I've tried the 'show as active in the drop down list... and gone to the UPS site and got its latest drivers/updates..... but the problem reoccurs upon each log in.
So any input on getting that system tray area in order to void that error message showing will be appreciated- thnx.

As you can see 2 error messages show?? [EFicon = Energizer File Icon--Energizer being the UPS]]
The above table is the Customization Section.

Actually how do I get past items in the system tray to enable upon login? It's new one to me.

A:Annoying pop ups, and a critical system error in my task icon tray

RELEVANCY SCORE 89.2

It's kind of hard to explain, but I'll do my best. When I turn on my computer and it goes to the GUI, the internet connection icon on the system tray has an 'X' on it for about one minute. During this time I cannot access anything online that involves administrator privileges. However, since I don't have firefox setup to run as administrator, I'm able to browse online even though the internet icon still has an 'X' on it. Once the 'X' finally turns into, the world, I'm able to access online things that require administrator privileges, ie. ventrilo. I'm not sure why this is happening; it all began when I connected my wireless HP printer to my router, it caused my router to stop working and I had to buy a new router. Before the other router broke, I was still having these problems with the 'X' for a long time. I switched my printer to connect to my computer instead of wirelessly hoping to a void this problem, but it still exists. Can anyone help?

Hi,

I've been having some very slow system issues today and have checked that system resources seem to be at normal levels - CPU usage at around 20% and Memory usage at around 50% during normal operating.

However I have noticed a new icon in my system tray which I can't identify, can't click on, and has no text when I hover over it. Can anyone recognise it? It looks like a grey/silver square or box with something green on it - no idea what it's trying to represent

Does anyone know what it represents?

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :

So for some odd reason today on one of my laptops my wifi seems to not be working. Usually I like to go and look at my wifi signal to see what Im connected to as soon as I boot m computer. Well this time I started it up and the wifi system icon will not show up. Of course I go to customize to see if its disabled and if I can enable it. Well the option doesn't even show up. I restarted the computer and even used system restore nothing seems to work. I ran a wireless network troubleshoot and it says the problem cant be resolved. Im on one of my other laptops because I cant access the internet on the laptop.
 
So can anyone help me at all? Im new to this forum I think but I do have FRST so if anybody has an idea please let me know. I will provide all the information I can if you tell me what i need to get.

Have you checked Device Manager?  Are there any problems noted with the wifi connection there?
Have you tried:

- uninstalling the current wifi software/drivers
- installing the freshly downloaded drivers?
 
Have you tried to reset tcp, ip, and winsock?

Hello All,

When I open Windows Live Mail I get the usual messages in the system tray area such as Connecting, Authorizing,updating calendar, and then It finishes up with an Error Icon in the system tray. (Yellow triangle w/ exclamation point.)

Then mail which has already been received opens in my inbox but the client doesn't seem to check the server for new e-mails at the time I open it. It takes ten minutes for the new mails to come into my inbox.

Under "Tools" > "Options" > "General Tab" I have selected "Send and Receive messages at startup" and "Check for new messages every ten minutes"

Can anyone tell me why this is happening? If you need any more info on this ask and I'll respond.

Thank you very much,

A:System Tray Icon

I'm 90-100% sure you have a spyware infection AND the red circle with the "X" inside is probably the culprit or a contributor to the problem. You probably picked up a trojan, your browser was hijacked, or some other security flaw in your system was compromised and malware coding was injected.

Have you noticed that your computer is slowing down, or locks up on you?
Have you noticed that your web browser's home page has changed?
Have you noticed that any previously installed AV programs or software is no longer functioning?
Have you checked C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file to see if there are new entries in this file? (by default the file should only be 1-2 Kb)

There seems to be a trend which is still pervasive and people just aren't catching on to it. Not sure when exactly this type of $hitware coding started popping up on the net, but its out there and its quite pervasive. Fraudulent spyware injection software which is floating around the Web / Internet, which implants onto your system, it will change registry key information, disable services, enable unnecessary services, disable AV or security software, among other things - all of which will contribute to bogging down your machine.

I would advise that the next time you start up your machine, make note of the supposed spyware infection and simply google it; you'll probably be surprised to find out that this is simply a fraudulent fishing ploy to get you ... Read more

Hi,
I am having a problem with Smart Defrag?
I have checked the box which says - load with windows at start up

Well, everytime I start windows, it does not put the icon in the system tray, like it should?
But if I uncheck the box, then check the box again, restart windows it shows in the system tray?
I have uninstalled it, but still the problem exists?
I even made a short cut to the startup folder, but it still will not add the icon to the system tray?

Is there a registry hack, that I can do, to make it show in the tray?, all the time?
Hmmm... Because I am tired of unchecking/checking the load up box...

Can anyone please help me with this?

A:System Tray Icon

If you are sure they are running in the background, you can set the properties of the system tray to always display the icons.

right-click on the task bar and choose 'properties'. At the bottom of the dialog click on 'Customise'. Here you set McAfee and Antispyware to 'Always Show'.

Another problem could be that they are not running. You may need to open MCAfee and Antispyware and set them to run at startup.

I'm not sure if you are referring to an icon showing you are connected to the network? But you can do that by going to Contro Panel, then Network COnnections, then right click on your Local Area Connection, and at the bottom of the general tab there is a tick box for "Show icon in notification area when connected" That will put it in your system tray.

how do you delete icons off of the system tray at the bottom right corner. so it doesnt take that long to start up and load. thank you.
 

A:System Tray Icon

The problem is really the programs behind the icons, not the icons themselves. These programs are "startup programs" that automatically run when you start your machine.

There are a couple of utilities that you can use to control your startup programs. My favorite is PC Magazine's StartUp Cop (I don't have a URL for it at hand, but you can Google it); I've seen a recommendation for StartMan (in another forum), available at:

http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads/startman/

There's also a utility that comes with Windows which will do the same thing but I usually avoid it.

Now for the important part: do NOT turn off all startup programs. If you do, you may well disable something important, so important that you may not even be able to boot your machine. If you mess up, start your machine in safe mode and then use the utility to undo the damage.

Take a look at the startup programs and see if you can recognize them, either by their name, or by their directory. I would recommend turning them off one at a time, to make recovery easier.

Hope this helps...

Somehow the program "System Live Protect" was loaded onto my WinXP Pro machine (probably by my MSN using teen). The program has a legit looking website but the software (or some trojan attached to it) has left a persistant popup on my taskbar after I uninstalled the main program. It shows a red icon similar to the Windows security warning shield on the taskbar and it pops up a conversation box advising that "Windows has detected a spyware infection.... etc" When you click on the icon or the popup box the only option is Yes or No to download the System Protect Live program. There is no obvious way to get rid of the program that drives the popup.
If anyone has any ideas on how to eliminate this I would greatly appreciate some help.
