Private and confidential box is popping up

On my wifes login, once her settings have loaded, without fail, a fair sized white box pops up, just above the clock, with the words Private and Confidential in it, surrounded by little x's.
Does anyone know what this is, and how to get rid of it?

Thanks

Steve

Thanks, but I've already tried that one, nothing was found.
Is it possible that its been left by a program?

Have a look in msconfig and see what is being loaded on startup. It maybe something obvious, ie Private and Confidential box or something more obsure, if it's not obvious, then I would google anything that you do not recognise.

If you find it (I would still google it to try and find out why it is there and what it does) untick the box and reboot.

Hope this helps.
