For the most part my computer runs smoothly, I've had very little issues with slow speeds, but they do happen occassionally. Recently, when opening my hidden programs on the toolbar, I've noticed a logo that is a blue rectangle with a white X inside of it. Sometimes there are multiple, and they dissappear almost immediately after opening the hidden processes. I haven't been able to hover over them to read the text. I've run both an MBAM and avast scan, but neither come up with anything. It seems strange because I haven't noticed any excessive slowness, just the occassional here and there when I have a tonne of things open. Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated, thank you!

A quick question before I do all of this, can I uninstall these programs when I'm done with them?
