    I have this weird grey box on the top left hand side of my screen, it isn't very big, but it over laps all of the programs I open. I hae no way to close it. It is really annoying. I restarted my PC and it wasn't there at first, but after a few minutes it randomly popped up.. it also just says "caption"in black letters on it

    Welcome to TSG, a google search found a few forums with this problem listed. With some the resolution was to go into the system tray and exit out of the Dell backup manager, another mentioned exiting out of some icon that looked like a metal eye (name wasn't specified) in the system tray.
