Windows 7: Weird Popup from Win7

Heh. I think I found it, and why it may be mentioned on that Turkish page. It appears that it may (I'm waiting for email confirmation) be generated by a program called "Word Web" that allows me to r-click words on the web or local computer for definitions, synonyms, etc. I hadn't put the two together until going to their site and noticing that they are very involved with energy saving ideas. It looks like after a while of using the "free" version of this product they may be including this power saving reminder to be green. I noticed that the Turkish page in question seems to be talking about Word Web. I'm pretty confident that WordWeb IS the source of this popup.

Confirmed by the author, it IS WordWeb. Thanks all for the attempts at solving this.

Use the Accelerators built in to Internet Explorer 8: Google Translate, Google Dictionary (Define), Google Maps, etc work great when you rightclick highlight anything.

Another example of how Win7's built-in features are much better.
