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.

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.)
