A program installed with Iomega zip drives, this application runs as a background process and detects what type of Iomega drive has been connected to your machine. It displays an icon that matches the corresponding device type. Overtaken by thumb drives in the portable storage world, zip drives are largely irrelevant now.

All comments about imgicon.exe:
imgicon.exe is a process which is installed alongside Iomega Zip Drives. The process will display icons which correspond to the individual zip drive's make and model allowing easy indentification. This is a non-essential process. Disabling or enabling this is down to user preference.  See also: Link HalfTrip
It's for your zip drive. Danke. Gawayne Grene
Associated with Iomega ZIP drives. Displays the correct icon for make and model of ZIP drive. Non critical process which can be disabled if desired.  See also: Link Tom Auger

it dont need to run if it's causeing errors remove it from your startup
it's some rubbish software that you don't need
On XP when shutting system down this process could not be terminated cleanly (have seen it more than once). It had to be killed. Even after killing it my system refused to shut down.
It's associated with my zip software, I think its ok Joy Foraker
it caused very long shutdown times on different machines Rene Stevens
When I installed the latest Iomega software on Windows 7 I got a message when booting up that Imgicon couldn't locate "GetFileVersionInfoA" in Version.dll I located Imigico.exe, and set properties to run compatibity with Windows 7 (my OS) andf now when I reboot it doesn't appear. Ron Black
