(Not sure where to put this, sorry in advance if someone had to move it :flowers: )
Hi again, I recently got lots of malware, but I successfully removed them thanks to RichieUK :thumbsup:
However, there was an icon that appeared in the taskbar after Windows Defender detected a trojan. I didn't notice until a while later, when it appeared on the taskbar and disappeared so fast a blink could have stopped me from noticing it. It also made a weird noise (the kind that comes up when someone inserts a USB memory stick into the computer) after it disappeared.
I have enclosed a picture. It would greatly be appreciated if someone told me what it is and if it's harmful or not.

"If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way." - Bertrand Russell
