This taskbar icon has appeared some time ago out of the blue. When I either left-click or right-click the icon...

... this window appears. I can't do anything with it. Clicking the window does nothing.

I can't identify the app from the task manager as there seem to be no apps that seem suspicious nor related with "start the game" icon that does nothing.

I've run a full virus scan with Avira and a malware scan with malwarebyte without any results. I've also googled but no one seems to have the same problem I have.

This is not one of 'startup' programs in the task manager although it starts with the windows 10. Please help!

No, it doesn't. I turned off all notifications but the icon is still there. I'm not running any apps I manually started either.

Best solution
