I hope this is the right area.

 

I noticed recently an icon appear in the notification area.

 

See image

It does not open, when you point-over does not say what it is and I can't find it in processes.

 

I did have this before a few years ago, can't remember how I got rid of it.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanksin advance

LOL @ your comments, all of you, no shame it's all good.

 

I remembered what it was, it's Glary Utilities update icon.

 

Even though I selected not to receive updates it ignored me.

Windows 7 ?

 

Anything show if you right-click it ?

 

Have you looked thru your Installed programs in Add/Remove, under Control panel ?

 

Maybe CCleaner could get rid of it, if it is a 'leftover'.

That's a mindblowing number of icons in your tray!

 

Only a clean install can fix it!

What do you see if you try to customize the tray icons? Is it listed there with a description?

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Notification Area Icons

Good lord, that's a lot of icons... :/

It almost looks like my Internet icon on Android (red box for clarification :p ):

Can't say that I've seen it before on a Windows machine though. Have you installed anything recently? Does it appear after a restart? If so, is there any startup program under msconfig that looks out of the ordinary?

With that little green blob on the corner it looks like an online status of some sort.

 

Try closing all the other programs that give you notifications in the tray, once they're closed have a look at your running processes in the Task Manager, see if any programs stick out that don't look like normal Windows functions.

Looks like planet Earth with a pointer on it. Maybe Google Earth or some kind of location awareness app?

^ You should be able to turn off the Update with msconfig, then.
