Strange desktop icon?

For some reason i have an icon that is a white square with what loks like an outline of a speaker with a cross in black.
This is not a normal icon as it is not possible to move it right clicking on it gives nothing any full screen web pages it is on the top.

Any ideas what this is got me baffled

Regards Roy

Hi Roy,

Do you mean to say that this icon is on your desktop yet, when you have a program running in full screen mode it is still visible and you can't move it? Can we have a snip of what you see?

Then ... what is the download manager you are using ? Something like Flashget ?

For the screenshot, you press the printscreen (PrtSc SysRq) button in the keyboard, and open paint window, and then click the paste button .

Try using the PrtScn key to capture the screen. Open Paint, paste the image and save it, after editing it (cropping) to show the icon in question. Attach this image to a reply.

Press this button ....

Then open paint, and click the paste button . Save the image and upload .

Btw, you haven't answered about your Download Manager . This is a common behavior for FlashGet .... maybe it is something similar.
