What does the red-thingy mean?

Hi again,

I wondered what the red thing means...
I can click on it and when I do I enter some website which reminds me of Google?

Here are two attached files...

What Is That Taskbar Thingy At Top Of Dell Desktop?
This should have been simple to research, but I can't find much about it. My new Dell computer came with what looks like an extra taskbar at the top of the W7 desktop, although it's bigger then the taskbar. Was there from the first time I turned on the computer. It's disappeared with no...
