Have you ran your antivirus? Do you have a program installed that uses this icon? Is the icon located on your task bar of running programs? Sorry for all the questions but these are things we would need to know to have an idea of your problem.
These kind of "attention issues" are usually Viruses or a software update. Have you ever seen this icon info before? It's likely a virus and if your not sure what something is or something strange or new pops up, first rule; don't click on it. That's how viruses execute themselves into your system.
Try right clicking on the icon & see if you have properties. From there follow the path on the general tab/location/and delete. Under description on the general tab will also give you a name of the program. Do a search and see if it finds anything. If there are different names write them down doing a search and deleting each one. This is how viruses can work.
If you feel it's a legit program go to start/run/type msconfig/startup tab/ look for suspisios programs and uncheck them. If your not sure what they are look each up on internet.

    Problem detecting wireless network laptop on windows xp no problem on other laptop windows vista

    Ok if your wireless card appears to be installed and working but all you get is an empty list of networks every time you search for available networks then chances are the windows wireless service is not running.. to fix this try the following:

    "Right click" on "my computer" icon and select "manage" from the drop down menu

    Then when the management console appears click "services and applications" on the left pane

    Then in the right pane "double click" the word "services" to show the list of services running on your computer.

    Then scroll down to the bottom of the list and usually about the third from the bottom you will see a service called "wireless zero Config"

    You need to make sure it says "started" in the "status" column if it does not then "right click" on it and select "start" from the drop down menu

    If the service says started and you are still getting an empty list then let me know and i will help you with the next step in solving it but usually 9 times out of 10 that is the issue

    I hope this info helps

    I'm using a Toshiba satellite notebook A200, which I faced the same problem like you saying my built- in webcam cannot operate after I clicked on the drop down list from the windows live messenger to have a webcam conversation. Another program is running the webcam at startup. That program is called Camera Assistant Software which is the conflicting software. Therefore I closed this software and I'm able to use my webcam again in my webcam conversation in windows live messenger. I hope this information will help you.Good Luck!
