Default How to remove program from taskbar!

Obviously this thing is a trojan or virus of some sort, and i cant get the little ******* to go away. SO my question is- how do i take this off of the taskbar, and essentially delete it. None of my anti virus/malware/spyware/adware has picked it up.

heres a screen to help-

1. Click Start
2. Click Run
3. Type "msconfig"
4. Click on "Startup" tab
5. Uncheck all the programs you dont want to run when you start your computer. In other words, only check the ones that are necessary.

Right click your Task Bar. Go to Customize and I guess you can change it to 'Always Hide'. Hopefully it'll go away.

LOL ^^^^^^^ I think he meant to completely go away and not use any CPU usage on it. But if you just dont want it to show, you can do what the above post said.

I think pinoy3000's advice would disable it forever.

I have run across that a few times now and I have found that using CounterSpy, Ewido and HijackThis together seems to get rid of it for good.
