I uninstalled AdAware, rebooted, then I downloaded and ran your Lavasoft AdAware Removal Tool: https://www.adaware.com/removal-tool, after restarting, I happened to check "Show which icons to appear on the taskbar" and I see 2 instances of AdAwareTray.exe that still appear as icons even after uninstalling Adaware and running the removal tool (which I anticipate may have been a side effect of my problem.) I did a online search and found both a Microsoft discussion that involves a manual removal/reset process: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-other_settings-winpc/uninstalled-items-are-still-showing-in-under-start/7c9b7ca8-18d2-4d43-bda0-4b9ba4b16587 And a separate forum discussion on tenforums.com that includes a .bat file that automates the Icon cache reset process: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5662-reset-notification-area-icons-windows-10-a.html This cleared the 2 instances of AdAwareTray.exe that were appearing. I reinstalled a clean version of AdAware (Version, however, the icon still does not appear to display anything when hovering over it with your mouse. Maybe it's not supposed to?
