sounds more like a stupid joke than anything >>> orange icon is probably the avast one >>> the guy is bored, obviously ::)

edit: @ the OP: unless you really got a screen shot giving some justification to this thread ??? I think he's looking for a way to deactivate the avast tray icon in the UI settings.

see screenshot, and try to make a clear post next time... ::)

Well see above. And really, it's the very first tab when you enter settings, how about some effort to find out yourself?  :(

I've had this program for a while - always DISABLED the icon from tray. Today, upon turning the computer on it presented itself. Nothing is checked in settings. I do not WANT this icon in the tray.

For anyone else who has had a similar problem - I just found out that if you go into settings and CHECK the show icon box, save and go back into settings and uncheck it - this will remove the icon from the taskbar.

Good luck to anyone needing actual help here.
