    HI ------Adaware finds this one occasionally. Picked it up from a site I no longer visit. It's not successful in hijacking my browser but shows up in the taskbar. Is there a way to block Media46.fastclick?

    If you have uninstalled a program and want to get rid of those annoying notification area icons go here:
    http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

    Scroll down to #53,click on it and when the download box opens,click open

    This will also get rid of all icons in there that are no longer associated with anything
