This icon has been appearing in my System Tray for a few weeks. It is two rotating blue C-shaped things. It only lasts for about a half of a second, but I was able to capture it using PrintScreen.

Can anyone identify it? I am kind of worried because I have no idea what it is or when it was installed.
The screencap is attatched.

Look in Add/Remove Programs to see if the icon is there.

You can also check in Scheduled Tasks for something scanning at Start Up. Have you looked in your Start Up programs for a clue?

Download Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) and look for any startup items you don't recognize. You can uncheck them. I believe that icon is associated with a "quick connect" app used in conjunction with a usb device you might use to upload or download data (not 100% certain though).
