Thread: Unknown icon in toolbar? What is it?

    Default Unknown icon in toolbar? What is it?

    What is this? I normally have one, now I have two. When you hover the mouse
    over it, it shows nothing.
    Here is a picture of it: http://usapetsitters.com/images/iconbar.jpg
    It's the two icons to the left.. kinda looks like a check mark in front of
    someone.

    If you know what it is, why is there TWO?

    Cant see the icon clearly. Right click on it and see if you have an option to open it or if you can get any addl info there; else doubleclick on it.

    He can see what it is called in the Start Menu Properties, in the bit about
    hiding Notification Area icons.

    Download WinPatrol here: http://www.winpatrol.com/ and install it. It will
    not only identify and allow you to manage start up programs and BHOs, it
    will require you to confirm future add ons that sometimes seem to install
    themselves with no warning or notification.

    Seems to look a little like either a Norton or McAfee Icon of some kind.

    In the future do NOT change the thread subject as you did here. Folks
    using newsreaders - the MAJORITY here - might not connect the two
    threads in their minds... and new folks won't have a clue what you are
    talking about.
