Default Unknown Icon In Notification Area of Taskbar?

Is it possible that the ICON is in the quick start area on the left end of
the task bar and not in the notification area on the right end of the task
bar? If yes then you should be able to right click on it an delete it.

Curious, excuse me I got my reply to you wrong. The icon IS in the
notification area but there is no title or any indication of what it is

it when my caps lock key is on so, maybe it has something to do with my
keyboard. Unfortunately, no information came with the keyboard.

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

antivirus. If anyone could help identify this icon it sure would be
