My situation is uncommon and quite uniquie. One day my curiosity got the best of me and I installed "Virtua Girl". I got rid of the program shortly after and its been several months I belive since its been on my computer. But then when managing my toolbar I came across this: (Please consult attached image).

There is no way at all to right click on this "Virtua Girl" tab, and the only manipulating forces i have over it is to select when I want its shortcut icon to appear. Please note that this program has been deleted and does not remain on my system. I did a full C:/ search for "Virtua" - nothing came up either.

Baisically the picture shows
Step 1: Right Click on task bar and chose properties.

Step 2: Click Customize on Taskbar Tab in Notification Area box.

Step 3: Custimize Notifications window pops up, the Virtua Girl selection is under the "Past Items" section, i need to scroll down.

Step4: Is the actual item i need removed.

Any help to rid my computer of this menace would be extrmeley appreciated, and the sooner the better.

Best Regards,
Radek

Have you tried combing through the registry? Or what about restoring from before you install virtualgirl?

I have never edited my registry before, nor do I know how, and rolling back a possible 4-5 months is not a possibily. Could you possible locate where these files are in the registry and tell me how to delete them?

Start->Run->regedit

Then do: Edit->Find

Look for variations on the word "virtualgirl".

Note: YOU NEED TO BACK UP YOUR REGISTRY BEFORE YOU EDIT IT

No, I don't know how to exactly, just read the help about backing up the registry. Or possibly make an XP system restore point before you go messing with the registry.
