    Need computer help

    Hey,

    Basically, the question is this. Does anybody recognize what program this calendar thing on my desktop is from?


    I normally use Rainlender, but just the other day I noticed this icon there. I don't think I installed anything that would have put it there, and I can't figure out a way to get rid of it.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    Probably came bundled with some other software.

    No idea what it is though.

    could be some stupid spyware thing that came with any new prog's you've recently downloaded.
    Other than that, I have no clue.

    Why don't you check your autostart menue first. The program should be listed there.
    If you found out, see if you can remove it manually.

    Of course you can alway remove all the programs you can't remeber having installed and see if it helps.

    Start > Run > msconfig

    Turn off everything that is not essential for system startup. If you are not sure type the system process into Google and there will be plenty of results that tell you what it does and if it's essential.
