Windows 7: Hidden icons in taskbar help

Hidden icons in taskbar help

Hi All,

I've just bought Windows 7 Home Premium & Office 2010 and installed both onto my laptop but I have noticed if you click the show hidden icons and then customize there is something in there called GLBF48B.tmp (Community toolbar installation - 98%)

Does anyone now what this might be??

Other than Office i've installed Paint.net, CCleaner, Firefox 4 Beta, Avast Free & Zone Alarm Free.

Thank you in advance,
Steve

Could you please be a bit clearer in what you are saying? I don't quite understand. Is what you're trying to say that you have an icon on your taskbar called GLBF48B.tmp? Why don't you try right click delete. Also could you provide a screenshot.

It's obviously a temporary file with the .tmp association and doubt you need it in the Taskbar, personally I'd right mouse click on it to unpin it then do a search in Computer to find where it is, if it is in a temporary folder I'd delete it.

Thanks for clarifying that. Must have accidentally dragged the temp file onto the Taskbar, am I right?

That's my guess, a lot of programs will leave an icon of the Temp Download on the desktop that will disappear once the programs real Icon is placed there, the OP either did not see the .tmp extension in the Properties or the Icon he wanted and dragged it there, I cant think of an instance where an Icon placed itself in the Taskbar without asking if that was what you wanted.

Pretty easy to drag it there without noticing though. I do it all the time.

ahh. Ok. Try going:
CTRL + ALT + DEL >> Task Manager >> Processes
Then look for anything that would relate to "Community Toolbar" and then Endtask.

Hopefully that fixes it.

Also recommend running a virus and Mal ware scan, something's running in the background.
