This file tries to connect to a website to help callibrate your monitor settings so you can match the colours and shadows accurately (mainly for games). I found that it was buggy and would not connect, so sat using all CPU cycles until I had to kill the process manually.

It was installed with the LG L1720B Monitor drivers. It seems to be harmless, but has the CPU running at 99%.

It is "True Internet Color" for monitor color management.

Part of 'colorific' colour management software - it used to connect to a server for colour profiles, but the 'colorific' is now gone

Does not seem to do much good but it runs at 25% CPU. I uninstalled the application 3D-Color. Things speeded up significantly. I strongly reccommend getting rid of this program from your computer.

Best practices for resolving TICIcon issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with TICIcon. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the TICIcon.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
