Computer Security & Viruses/qtrax

Question
Hello.  I seem to have contracted Qtrax while downloading something else (which turned out to be a bust anyway.)  Meanwhile, Qtrax keeps popping up and I'd like to get rid of it.  I can't find it on my list of programs (I'm working with XP) from the control panel's "Add or Remove Programs".  Is Qtrax a virus or just an annoyance?  ie is it doing anything malicious to my computer besides harassing me?  Any clues how to get rid of it?
thanks
Jonathan

Answer
HI Jonathan,

It might be hidden. See and follow the steps in # 3  - computervirusmanualremval.blogspot.com/2013/08/how-to-removeuninstall-qtrax-drm-step.html

It might also be accessible to remove via Revo Uninstaller (free or paid version)

Let me know if one of these methods works for you.
