    I have unistalled the Winreanimator but the darn executable that tells me my system is still infected keeps popping up in the system tray. How do I remove that icon with a red circle and an X in it?

    If you have only uninstalled the program, there are a few more steps for you to go through. If you have gone through all the steps, you might have missed a file. If you are a non-techie, I suggest you follow the Automatic Removal Instructions. Bottom line Junked is that if the pop-ups keep coming up, it's because your PC is still infected by WinReanimator.
