    I have suddenly got a ghost-like task bar on the top right of my screen. It is transparent and always on top of any window that is open. I have created a screen a sample from a screen shot:
    [​IMG]

    It closes itself during the shutdown process and behaves like a window except that clicking on it does nothing - you can't move it, and you can't close it.

    I have searched the web in vain for answers. Has anyone seen this before?

    Thank you in anticipation

    Welcome to TSG:)
    Yep...........Weve seen the Blighter before...
    Heres what we need you to do.

    Go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required....so do NOT "fix" anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

    ;)

    Before we fix anything with H/T can you do this.
    Download and run this:
    www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/cwshredder.zip

    Download AdAware 6 181 from here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/
    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
    Then ........

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
    From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

    Then......

    Click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

    Then.........

    Go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and tick "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

    Then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

    Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

    When scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose"select all" from the drop down menu)

    Then
    Download Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de

    After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
    Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED


    Then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left.

    ;)

    And when this is all clean...
    Consider installing the following:

    SpywareBlaster v2.6.1 and SpywareGuard v2.2, to prevent Active-X drive-by installations, as well as provide real-time browser hijacking protection: http://www.wilderssecurity.net/index.html

    IE-SPYAD, a registry file that adds a long list of known "sites" to the Restricted Sites of your Internet Explorer: http://www.staff.uiuc.edu/~ehowes/resource.htm

    ;)
