Yes that helps. Explorer is right next to that window on the left. It may be a user pined item, try looking in %AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar
for a shortcut that has a missing icon and remove it.
Hmmmm looking at the photo again it appears that is not a pinned item but a running application, you say that it is there everytime you start your computer?
