Windows Automatic Updates

This icon is the Automatic Updates icon which appears in the System Tray (the lower right corner of the screen) whenever there are new critical security or software updates that you need to install on your computer.

When your computer detects that a new update is available to download and install, the following speech bubble will appear in the lower right corner of your screen stating: New Updates are ready to install.
