What is this?

Is anyone else getting this strange box in the top left corner of their desktop? Says "Server prot.."

What is this? And can I get rid of it some how?

Thanks!

Does it show even when you have no gadgets showing? Try losing 1 at a time to see if they are connected with the 'strange little box'

Game Booster is REALLY good, I use that in conjunction with Bitsum Process Lasso 3.61.3 BETA "Gaming Mode".

It shuts down every Service that you don't need, and Processes. You can even add more Services to disable but I don't bother with that since I'm running like 5 Services out of 150 or so or whatever on Windows Vista/7 . You can add more Processes to shut down too. When you're done with gaming, you just click "Normal Mode" and it reverts all your settings back to what it was before, NO problems.

I've been using it since Beta 3, it is now version 1.10.

Game Booster | Better Play Experience | Game Accelerator

Also try out Process Lasso from Bitsum, it is VERY effective and customizable. They tend to update it like once a day or twice a day but you have to manually update it since Auto doesn't pick up the interim updates. Current versions is 3.60.7, Beta is 3.61.3

Process Lasso, the Windows process optimizer!

Process Lasso isn't just a "Process Viewer" like what you attached, Process Lasso handles your processes efficiently and you can tell what processes what to do and stuff and it handles it automatically, you don't have to do anything. Just read the website that I provided.

Here's a better picture of what Process Lasso does on my computer. Hope it explains it better.
