What is this?

It randomly appears here and there. Like sometimes I won't see it for months and then it just comes out of nowhere.

No that's a different magnifier. Like I said it doesn't always show up.

I thought magnifier at first, but the icon is different. What does it say if you right-click it?

I can't right or left click on it. When I hover over it, nothing shows up.

I don't download toolbars, addons, or anything like that. So I highly doubt it.

I just looked through the installed updates and the installed programs. Nothing with the word search or desktop or anything remotely related to those were found.
