Help Identifying System Tray Icon - Please!

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have in my 'system tray' a red 'house' like icon with a flag pole and what looks like a kind of 'flag' ontop as seen here: http://img42.imageshack.us/i/atriskiconbigger.jpg/ you'll notice if I place my mouse over the top of it it says 'computer status at risk' if however I right click the icon it says simply 'open'. I am unsure as to whether it's there to redeploy whatever the payload was of the 'av.exe' virus that I picked up which was some kind of 'fake anti virus' application, or if it's something that I've installed in my desperate bid to get rid of the 'av.exe' application.

Can anyone assist in identifying the strange icon please?

Thank you.

Are you running Microsoft Security Essentials? If so, open that application and click to update. Hopefully, that will fix things and you should then see your "red house" with the flag turn back to green!
