highlight with left click hit delete key

if will not delete, then boot into safe mode and delete from there.

As Diemmess says , try that idea and see if you can get any info on what the icon relates to . If you can find the name of it and it is something which you do not want or need then try to remove the program for it in add/remove programs.

Have you run an Anti Virus scan ? Do you have ad aware , spybot , CWShredder , a² or any of these types of program ? The reason I ask is because there is the possibility that this is a nasty of some description , a dialler or worm , trojan , virus etc.
