On a fairly regular basis I am surprised with an extra item in my taskbar
which operates like spyware (free screensavers etc.). I close the window
and it's gone.

At that point am I rid of it, or should I run my spyware scans?

Thanks.

I recommend an article at Aumha.org on ways to cleanup parasites.
Follow the quick-fix protocol.

Also get & run Silentrunners at http://www.silentrunners.org
