    Please help - square wont leave desktop!
    Hey everyone,
    I'm hoping you can help me.
    My stupid cat was walking all over my keyboard and now this square won't leave my computer and I don't know what to do! It looks like this

    But when I open Safari the black box moves to like highlight the search bar, or this box I'm typing in right now.

    Please help!!

    - Stephanie

    Like bobtomay remarked the other day... "It's a conspiracy!"

    To the OP:

    Open up your System Preferences, go to "Universal Access". Click on the "Seeing" tab. Turn the "Voiceover" option to off.

    Hey Nick... do you think the cats are trying to tell us something?

    I have a cat, and I've caught him on my keyboard before. Maybe it's their master plan to try to hack the Pentagon or something...
