SQL Server Service Manager keeps showing up

December 7, 2009 at 23:01:49
Specs: Windows XP
I don't know why, but SQL Server Service Manager keeps showing up in the notification area. It says Not Connected - \\ at the bottom. The computer is not a server, and never has been.

Thanks for any help.

casryl, suspect you have a worm/trojan nasty. Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Superantispyware can do the job and you can get it free @:
among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update prior to running and disable 'restore' (restart after cleaning) so it doesn't get put back. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try.
