    Hi freddie ,

    Reboot in Safe Mode ( Tap the F8 key on Reboot , select Safe Mode ) Navigate to BLADE RUNNER 0.80 ALPHA and Nuke it! Shutdown & Normal Reboot.

    Good luck

    Freddie,

    From safe mode, open REGEDIT,
    start / run / regedit <type,

    Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then Software > Microsoft >Windows > CurrentVersion > Run

    Now remove the key: System Tray
    Reboot the computer and delete the file that was running from the tray icon.

    Retest your system with this trojan detector:

    Bo Detect - trojan hunter

    :)

    If F8 doesn't work, tap the CTRL key.
