Have you tried right-click on the extra icon and then hit Exit?

That's because it's finished scanning - it will return. You have AVG set to run an auto-scan each day. Personally I prefer to run an AVG scan on demand and have disabled that function. To do that open AVG > Tools > Advanced Settings > Expand Schedules > click on Scheduled Scan > in the right-hand pane at the bottom uncheck Enable this Task > Apply and OK.

I get the same thing and the box is unticked so that does not seem to work

you're right - since I posted that I now have the same thing happening as well. May be something in today's downloads?
