    dont tell me.... ur using windows 98? if so that's nothing to be worried about, shows why win98 sucks.

    just do a refresh or do an 'end task' on explorer.exe

    is there any icon in the task bar entry?

    if you do "Ctrl+Alt+Del" and look at the applications part are there any obviously listed items with no name to them?

    does it frequently popup?

    There is no icon and no applications running. It has happened before on the odd occasion, but disappears when I reboot
