    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.

    Re: Unknown icon in toolbar? What is it?

    It's not the sidebar icon and whatever it is it requires elevated
    permissions to run (just by looking at the shield on the icon)

    Have you tried looking at the notification area properties right click on
    taskbar and select Properties. In the taskbar and start menu properties
    window, click the notification area tab, then click the Customise button.
    Look down the list of current and past icons to see if the applications name
    is registered here.)
