I have Vista home profesional machine. Everything works fine except that every so often a small box appears in the mid-upper left screen. This box has an"X" to close it, an underline to minimaze it. Except nothing works.The computer imediately "freezes" I have tryed shuting down every thing in task master. Still no good. MY guess is that it is some form of Malware that originally wanted me to buy some program, but has gone haywire and lost the link to whatever product it was pushing. Any guesses?

Edit: Moved from Miniguides to Vista~~boopme
