    Recently I got onto my laptop and looked at the task bar. A new icon was there. So I checked the prosses... nothing, the services... nothing. Networking, CPU and RAM usage. Still nothing. I don't Know if it belongs to malware or is something having to do with hardware failure ect.

    If you know what it is please post

    It looks like a camera or mabye a HDD

    Welcome to TSG!
    Do you have an USB/Firewire external drive or USB Pen drive plugged in?
    What do you get when you hover your mouse over it?
    What do you get when you right click it?

    Actualy, turns out msn messenger was f'ed up. I noticed the msn Icon didn't appear. So I re-installed it and the thingy whent away and msn was back. I think it was a registry glitch or something

    That icon is #9 in shell32.dll, so a corrupt registry entry could have been pointing to there instead of the MSN Messenger file.

    Good job on figuring it out, and thanks for posting the solution.
