New Behavior: Norton Security shows as an unendable app in the taskbar

About a week ago I noticed that there is a running-app Norton icon on the task bar.  The app also shows in task manager but can't be terminated. When the icon is clicked nothing shows.  When the icon is hovered-over, there is a mini-image of a thin white vertical line (see attached snip). In the past Norton was just a background process and never showed as an app unless explicitly invoked.  This behavior has started on my other 4 machines.  When I restart the pc the icon initially disappears but then reappears sometime later.  I am hoping that there's no bad program trying to defeat Norton.  Thanks for any guidance!

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Click on unwanted icon in the taskbar. Click on Help..........click on problem fix, close apps and restart computer. Waaala! It's gone!

Thank you Norton for the quick fix.
