Box floats across screen with ? mark

\015 Annoying box floats across screen with ? mark says something is not ideal. Can't get it off my screen\015

Answers :

That sounds like you have a virus or spyware running. Probably a Trojan down loader trying to get you to click on something so it can install more fun stuff on you.
\015\012Use an online scanner such as Trend Micro or any other that will scan and kill off the spyware.
\015\012http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ That can take 30-90 minutes to scan your computer.
\015\012Be suspicious anytime a system warning pops up and it doesn't quite seem right or it isn't clear what the problem is. I've seen weird boxes that turned out to be software but you know when you are running those.
\015\012Consider downloading or using an antivirus and anti spyware tool. For example I use Avast home on several computers for viruses and then Spybot SD to clean out the spyware. You need to check for both as one will eventually load up your system with both types. They are both similar but viruses will tend to stay hidden while spyware pops up adverts or tries to take you to web pages and so on. As well you should install either google or yahoo toolbars as they have some of these functions built in and can help prevent the infection from starting.
Scan your computer and get rid of all the viruses you can.
