Hi folks,

I have a pop up that appears that has information about your current window/task. I can't remove it. Have tried the reboot etc. No idea where it came from - refer example in attached file. I can move it or resize it, but not delete/close it.

Any ideas what this is and how to remove it?

Scott

I am almost certain you have some Universal Access feature turned on. (Universal Access is known as "Accessibilty" in Mountain Lion.)

Open System Preferences and go to Universal Access (or Accessibility) and uncheck whatever you have checked in there.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
