    A Lighted Square? (WinXP SP-2)

    I've got some kind of "lighted" square in the upper left of my desktop... dunno where it came from, but it won't go away!

    Icons placed on top of it show up as if it's going to "disappear", but it just comes back after moving the icon...

    And it's there after re-booting!

    What the heck do I do about this "thing"?

    ,Regards,
    Chuck

    Have you checked the Desktop tab of the Display Properties control panel?
    See if there's a desktop picture set that contains the square.
    Also click Customize Desktop and activate the Web tab to see if a web page is displayed on your desktop.

    Well, I hope Hans hit it for you, Chuck, but if not...

    A picture is worth - you know what. This is the upper left corner of my desktop. What's in yours - it might help us "detectives" I.D. the perp?
