What is this thing running in the taskbar?

The 'K' icon probably belongs to "Kaspersky Antivirus" but it should be red when it's working okay and up to date.
If it's grey it usually means the trial version (or the subscription for updates) has expired.

If you go in to Control Panel > Programs & Features you should find the Kaspersky software listed there if I'm right about the icon. You can uninstall it from there and the icon should no longer be there after restarting Windows.

However, you should really not be running the system without some up-to-date antivirus software, so choose one and install it as soon as possible, certainly before downloading anything else (except antivirus software of course).

Ya, I have done that. I have checked the programs running in the Task Manager but there's too many of them to narrow down my search to find this particular application.

I posted the question in another forum and they are guessing its a key-logger. Any way I could remove it?

OK, so I found out its All-In-One Keylogger. Problem is I do not remember installing it (I did not install it). Its not in the installed programs. Any way you could help me in removing it?

It's hidden really well. Couldn't find it. I have installed spybot though. I'll try that out.

You can always try GMER. I haven't used it before, but it seems highly recommended.

Update: I deleted my other comment and reposted it in order to make it chronilocically correct.

Update 2: Spoke too soon... the system is still in a state of transition.
