It looks like the windows explorer is missing its default icon, did you upgrade your windows 7 build or do a clean install?

The default icon for explorer looks like a folder, if you right click it does it show you the explorer jump list?

If it is pinned to the taskbar you can right click it and unpin, have you determined if it is explorer? do you have an explorer on your taskbar?. Perhaps you could post a screen shot of the entire taskbar with out safari running.

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?

taskbar window issue
Hello, this is my first post. I´m having trouble with the taskbar window "icon" size - it is set to "small icons", but somehow Windows 7 changed it to a "squared" icon only, with no label. I tried a lot of things but nothing works. Here´s the screenshot:...

I searched this and ended up deleting and rebuilding the icon cache per another thread, but it did not work. I attached a screenshot. The icons missing are google chrome, opera, and CPUIDhmonitor.
