Black box in the top right corner of the screen

Hello,


A black box appears and stays in the top right corner of the screen.


I did a screen shot but the black box does not appear, is not visible on the picture.


I don't know what to perform ; restart, anti-virus software, ccleaner actions didn't work out.


Please help.


Thank you

Double click on the black box. Does it open any other screen?

Hello,


No, it doesn't. No any other screens.

Let's say 1/9 of the screen.

Is it possible that it's a gadget on the sidebar? Is there any context menu if you right click on it? On my Win 7 system, two of the gadgets are now white boxes but I haven't tried to do anything with it.

Unfortunately no. No context menu with a right click.


Any idea ?

Perform a Clean Boot, or

Turn Off Gadgets and re-boot.

If the problem goes away, then it is just a process of elimination to find the cause.

All right.
Would you be kind enough to show me how to proceed a clean boot ?
Thank you

Certainly!

You can proceed with Clean Boot just by following Step One in this Windows Seven Tutorial: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup.

If the Clean Boot succeeds in making the black box disapear, then proceed onto Step Two, in the same Tutorial.
