There is a green box with the letters "EN" in my system tray. It was not
there a couple of hours ago. How do I get it to go away? What is it? I
searched help but could not find anything regarding it.

All help is appreciated.

Dunno what the "EN" is, but could well be something nasty.

First, run your virus checker (with its latest definitions!!) and any other
malware utilities you have.

Then, irrespective of whether you found anything (but DO run your AV
first!!) run System Restore and roll-back to the last date/time BEFORE the
"EN" started to appear.

I have just such an icon in my system tray , except its blue rather than
green.. This might be totally different from what youre describing. But in
MY OWN case it is really a shortcut to:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\INTERNAT.EXE

I have it there by design so I can shift keyborad languages. I can remove
it by unchecking the entry "internat.exe" in Msconfig. But if I click on a
shortcut to the internat.exe it will reappear in my System Tray and remain
there until I remove it again via Msconfig. if you right-click on that icon
, you might get "Properties", and it will show which languages your keyboard
is enabled to work in. If its the same shortcut in your case, it is puzzling
how it got there in the first place without your knowing it. unless you
accidentally clicked on a shortcut like that....

Sure warrants an AV scan though.

Although I don't recognise it as being green, En in the systray is usually
an indication that you have your PC and keyboard configured for more than
one language or layout and are currently using English. Clicking the En
symbol should then open a menu listing the installed keyboard languages.

If you want just the one keyboard language/layout then open the Control
Panel, select and open Keyboard, click the Language tab and select and
remove any unwanted languages, then click Apply and close the applet..

A musthave is the 'winpatrol' program (www.winpatrol.com)
It's checks if a program is trying to put itself into the startup
sequence...and gives a warning and a choice to
allow that or not...
Also you can see what the startuptasks are and which are currently running
and much more....
Really it's not only for free but it's also a musthave !!!!

"loosing", like the opposite of tightening?

If you want everyone to know who you are respondng to, you need to include
the message with your response. If, per chance, you are referring to me, I
didn't lose my cool. Pointing out that someone is being a moron does not
necessarily mean one is losing one's cool.

Only six people responded to this thread, if the hat fits, wear it. I found
your response unnecessarily rude and out of tone usually used in this forum,
but than thats just my opinion and not an argument.
