Only recently did the “9” show up in my hidden toolbar list. It’s there whether or not my num lock is on, and no “A” appears when my caps lock is on. When I click, double-click, or right-click on the icon, nothing happens. Why has it suddenly appeared, and why doesn’t it respond to any input?
I just go off chatting with Dell. The Icon that you are referring to is actually a application “Quick set” that works for the shortcuts of the keyboard. You can disable it by using msconfig, and turning off the Dell Quickset in the startup tab.
However, if you turn it off you can’t use quickset. On my Inspiron 14 laptop, that means I can’t control the volume, brightness, and media controls. So you basically have to live with it. Not to smart on Dell’s part.
Yes, it’s just the numlock that’s all. lol. Thanks people.
Andy, you are a genius I have searched a few threads and people have said the black box with the 9 icon is anything from a trojan to this Dell Quickset program. Seems very logical and now I will not panic my machine has been infected!!! Thanks!!
This helped! thank you.
The blackbox with a white 9 is the number lock icon. Hit numlk key and it goes away. Cap lock key has a black box with an A in it.
Quickset appears on my toolbar as a blackbox and a white 9. is it harmful?
