Are the two icons active and working? Meaning double clicking on it launching the NIS 2012 Main UI?
Would it be possible for you to share a snapshot of it when you see it again, that help us to analyze.

it is also NIS 2012 and updated to the latest version and no i didnt screw around with any of the setting i have recently formatted my pc and it just started today
Was this a full format (wiping the hard drive[s]) and a clean install of the OS? Or a repair installation of the OS only?

I am having the same problem that started in the last two to three days. I can remove one of them running prefetch and cleaning out the folder items. But they return after a cold reboot.

Same thing is happening to me starting about Dec. 18th-20th. On some restarts (not always) two Norton icons sit in the system tray. If I click on both of them only one copy of Norton Internet Security will open up. When I shut it down both icons remain.

I have the same issue on NIS 12, running windows 7 64
I can clear taskbar data with ccleaner and re-start explorer.exe to remove. However, once I restart my computer it happens all over again. Both icons function the same whether clicked or right-clicked.
Does anyone know why this happens? Can it be resolved?
