Annoying icon

Question

I have a little icon that keeps popping up on my task bar next to the clock that looks like a paper airplane. When I run my cursor over it, it says "Discovering Devices". It pops up ever few seconds and then goes away and the cycle repeats. Right clicking the icon gives me no options. I have another machine that is running windows 98 that this does not occur on. What is it and how can I get rid of it? Thanks, Jack.
