What they heck is Tukan?

Periodically, when booting my wife's XP laptop, an application called Tukan launches. I can't figure out what it is or how it is spawned.

In the Task Manager, the task appears on the Applications tab just as Tukan. It appears as a minimized window and when I click on it, you see the animation of a window maximizing but nothing appears. If I right-click on it, no context menu appears. I can end it through the Task Manager and it does not re-appear until a reboot occurs. But, it doesn't always launch on a reboot.
I have searched the hard drive, examined the start-up folder, searched the registry, examined all the items in the Run nodes of the registry, have examined the config files through sysedit, I have stopped and started many processes and I just can't find anything.
I can't find anything relevant on the Internet. Only hit at McAfee was a red haring as Tukan appeared as a first name sent in an email from a virus.
Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!
