Dear Origin,I thank you for your help: but yesterday afternoon when I reopened my PC, Windows Live One Care has trapped a Trojan:Win32/FakeXPA that I have already deleted. From this very moment Alpha has disappeared from Task Manager and also from the list of the programs installed from which I was not able to uninstall,also the icons positioned in the lower tool bar are disappeared. I thank you again for your help,and in the meantime I save your advice for future need (I touch wood). If you need further explanation I will send you promptly. Yours truly [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
