I've seen this question before by other people. [Reference] The icon is from cscript.exe. You can find this in your C:\Windows\System32\ folder.

This means some type of script is being run at startup.

Here's some documentation on cscript.exe:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/administration/windows-commands/cscript

A quote from the page says:
Windows script files usually have one of the following file name extensions: .wsf, .vbs, .js."
As stated above, use AutoRuns and look for any of those script files being run, or look for cscript.exe being run at startup.
