What The Heck Is This Blue Box Called So I Can Turn It Off.


I really hate whatever this is and since I don't know what to call it I can't find out how to turn it off. Win7 and it happens whenever I move a small window around. I can place the window inside the box and it moves it to the appropriate spot on the screen. I want it gone.

It means you need to upgrade to Windows 10.

Never seen that. Why are you chasing a "small window" around the screen btw?

Because it's there. Didn't have this on my last setup before the crash, so I don't know why it's here now.

Re: What The Heck Is This Blue Box Called So I Can Turn It Off.


It did not.

I tried it by itself and while the box was on the screen.

It doesn't seem to be part of narrator, especially since I have it turned off.

ctl alt delete bring up taskmanager see what processes are running. Kill suspiciously named ones see if it goes away.

Start button: type services.msc this will show you what services are running, background, etc. Again kill or stop suspicious named ones.

I use process explorer not the task manager, much more inclusive. I've gone though it with a fine tooth comb and found nothing.

Haven't looked at services yet.

Try the task manager and watch the memory column while moving it around... might help ID it...

Everything in services looks legit. It's part of the OS, if I could find out what it's called I'm sure it can be turned off.

That did it. Dell PremierColor. Don't know what it does but I've suspended it and the box doesn't show up. It is not a Dell thing it made by Portrait Displays Inc.

I can't suspend the service though, looks like it might be important

Its a non-essential color-tuning app.
