It's kind of hard to tell what you are talking about.


Something you have installed has added that icon for you, so, you need to uninstall something to remove it.


Have you tried right clicking it to get its options menu? You will be able to see what it is then too.

I'm glad to hear you were successful in dealing with the infection. However, be aware that using ComboFix is only one part of the disinfection process. Preliminary scans from other tools like DDS, RSIT and GMER should be used first because they provide comprehensive logs with specific details about files, folders and registry keys which may have been modified by malware infection. Analysis of those logs allows planning a strategy for effective disinfection and a determination if using ComboFix is necessary.

Further, when issues arise due to complex malware infections, possible false detections, problems running ComboFix (i.e. stalling, hanging, crashing) or with other security tools causing conflicts, experts are usually aware of them and can advise what should or should not be done while providing individual assistance. When false detections are identified, experts have access to the developer and can report them so he can investigate, confirm and make corrections. These are reasons we ask people not to use ComboFix without being advised to do so by a trained expert (see here) who is assisting them deal with a malware problem.

With that said, you were fortunate in this instance that no unforeseen consequences or serious problems occurred.
