Hello,

I've been running Windows Vista 32 bit for awhile, and recently I've had a problem where Windows Explorer stops working. When Vista restarts it, this little M icon appears in my task bar. When I run my mouse over it, it disappears. Does anyone know what this is?? A virus maybe? Anyways, I've attached a picture of my taskbar with the "M" in it, in case it jogs anyones memory.

PS I didnt know where else to put this, since I'm unsure what exactly it is.

Thanks!

So - That "M" is mcafee... but the weird thing is that it never shows up regularly... only when explorer quits and restarts.... perhaps some virus or trojan is blocking it from starting.
