Since it is listed in the system tray, what does it show the app is under Customize. Click Start Orb, type Notification Area Icons in the Search Box, Click Notification Area Icons and see what it says for that icon.
I'm not sure. It disappeared after I restarted explorer.exe

Anyways, here's the picture.

Next time it shows up in the systray, do as I have suggested. It should tell you what the icon is.

UPDATE: I've got the icon right now. Funny thing is when I try to open up my Windows Live Messenger, it waits a while and closes.

The Windows Live Messenger is correct but I'm doubtful as to the icon. Your system tray notification area icons could be corrupted. Notification Area Icons - Reset
Pay close attention to the warning to follow the steps. At first glance, one would think that clearing the reg entries and reboot would work, but it doesn't. Make sure you follow each step.
