Windows Security Alert Virus in Taskbar

Specs: Windows XP Pro SP3
A nasty little virus popped up on my computer last night masked as a Window Security Alert. I downloaded MalwareByte's Anti-Malware and performed the scan several times both in Safe Mode and in normal operating mode followed by CCleaner. Although all of the infected files, keys, etc. were tagged, quarantined and removed, the icon is still in my taskbar. I don't want to click on it; from what I've read, that will launch the virus again, but how can I completely remove it?


Any assistance would be much appreciated!
