Malke,

Many thanks for that - I'll give it a try!

However, I've also come across esb.exe (via Google) as a 'Trojan' -
I've had the computer from new for 4 or 5 years and haven't noticed
this icon before
in the desktop taskbar - so I remain suspicious!!!! Not completely
convinced that it's going to disappear just like that (simply
uninstalling doesn't work)- if it IS a trojan I assume it will need
either specialist software or will need to identify Registry entries
which need deleting.

I'll give your method a try this evening and let you know if it
worked!

Malware can be named anything, so it never hurts to be sure the machine
is clean. Here are some general removal steps:
