After I installed Eraser and re-started the tray only showed the Eraser shortcut. The taskbar divider was stuck to the left at the START button and not movable. All the taskbar icons were gone. I decided to uninstall. This was quite an ordeal with Eraser and Spybot becoming 'merged'. I had to unintall Spybot to get rid of most of Eraser, some elements remain (it's still in the contextual menus). I'm using Win98 on a ca2000 Dell laptop. I'm noticing other abnormalties and looks like I'll need to re-enstall Windows.
