    Type msconfig in search and hit enter. look for mobile partner. OUC under services and disable it



    typed msconfig in search, looked but dont have mobile partner.OUC under services?
  4. sounds like a malware or equivelent..
  5. try super-anti spyware, spybot search and destroy and trend micro house call
  6. Right click on the taskbar and click the "customize..." button in the "notification area" and see if it show up in the list and you might able to disable it.
  7. hi! I am having same problem here! , my heart almost dropped seeing what was it ! I recorded my desktop , paused the video and scrolled till I found that tab, it is exactly what you said, it looks like something bad! :S I thought it was some malicious software or a spyware which would record all my activities (my imagination drifted away)! I couldn't solve this darn problem, I have done all what ppl said here, but didn't get any better!!!

  9. Hi,
    I had the same problem of ray-76. msconfig gave me the answer. Open services and look for your internet provider's name. That may be mobile partner OUC or any other, as 'dialog mobile broadband OUC' for me.
