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?
