Default Unknown Icon In Notification Area of Taskbar?

Go to Control Panel/notification area icons and determine what it is and
then you can turn it off if you want.

There is an untitled icon always present in the notification area of my
taskbar. This Icon appears to be a locked padlock with the number 9 on it.
When I pass my cursor over it no title or description appears and nothing
appears to happen when I right click, left click or double click on it. I
have searched the help files and browsed Windows Explorer looking for a
file with such an icon and have not found any. My hunch is that icon must
be related to some security feature. I am using McAfee antivirus. If
anyone could help identify this icon it sure would be great.
