Windows 7: Unwanted "Thing"

Unwanted "Thing"

I don't know what this is, or where it came from but it is a confounded nuisance as when I am on the internet or using Photoshop, it flies out across the screen and blocks out some of the items I am trying to work with. Does anyone please know what it is, where it comes from and how I can get rid of it??

Regards,

RonBin79 (now 82!)

Hey RonBin,

It seems like "Math Input Panel" to me and somehow it got activated. You can deactivate it. Click on close button. Once you close it, this will go to the system icons. You can simply right click on it and click exit.

Hope this helps.

You can also uninstall it so you don't accidentally activate it again. (Especially if you do not have a touch screen.)

Click then click control panel. Click programs. Click turn windows features on or off. In the box that pops up, scroll down and uncheck Tablet PC Components. Click ok, restart when prompted.

Thanks Andrew, I have done that, I hope it doesn't affect the tablet I use for the photographic work I do with Photoshop....

Cheers,
