    do something like press your print screen key, if your runing on Windows open up MS Paint, go to edit and paste, then there is your image,now save it, and go to somewhere like photobucket/imageshack and upload it and in the reply box put in the url for it and we'll be able to see.

    I have no idea what that is. Do a virus scan just in case! (I have a virus/spyware phobia ). I mean what the hell is it? And why were there two but now only one????????????


    I see that you also have the Sims 2 fun times, fun times. I think I'll go play mine now, I'm trying to create a town full of aliens or vampires...hehe.

    Can you at least do a right click?

    I found the freee MacCafee online scan to be pretty thorough. It doesn't get rid of your viruses (cuz you are supposed to buy the full version) but it finds stuff other scans wouldn't normally find...( ) I've tried a lot of scans. AVG is free to download, I also got their new spyware scan ewido. Ad-aware for some reason isn't working for me right now, it freezes midway through. Spybot-search and destroy is also free and is pretty good.

    Alright, ran a antivirus thingymabobbin and it found one trojan, ran a spyware detector found 3 things. I've fixed up all the virus stuff but none of these are the blue thing!!

    To the previous question, can i right click it? nothing happens when i click it all i can do with it is pick it up and move it around. right click has no response

    It looks like a mini window, maybe from a pop up or spyware but if you've run it and it hasnt gone, i have no idea!!
