When i switch on my Laptop and the homepage has loaded i get a square at the top of the screen with a hand and a finger pointing down and a no entry sign on it. It only stays on for a few seconds .This has just started recently. I run Windows 10, i have run a virus scan and the scan reports no problem, anyone else have this. Its got me puzzled. Any suggestions much appreciated.

Can you take a picture of what pops up John i have some sort of stop sign with my pop up blocker, you could do a system restore and restore the laptop back a month or so.

If you can get a picture of the icon that would help.

Use snipping tool which is built into windows 10 to grab a picture of it

Thanks Lee, i would have to do a short vid i think as the thing only stays on for a very few seconds, good idea about system restore, never thought of that. Iv'e stuck a peice of tape over the camera lens too in case its taking photos.

Problem solved, i decided to take my laptop to PC World to see if they knew what the strange thing was popping up on the screen, they knew what it was straight away, i somehow had managed to disable the touchpad, they enabled it, problem solved, no charge, I didn't know you could disable/enable the touchpad. You can enable/disable the touchpad with function key F7.
