While AntiSpyware is running, it generates up to a dozen or so identical
system-tray icons! This behavior started after the June security updates. I
have the June 23 version of Antispyware, and I have customized the
notifications to "always hide" Antispyware.

Is this a known problem? Is it possible to limit AntiSpyware to one icon?

Just a shot in the dark-try uninstalling and then reinstall.

Max,

I have removed and reinstalled AntiSpyware many times, to no avail.
