Customer Question

A window in on my desktop & I can't get rid of it. The red x is not lit up - just the yellow minus and the green plus. The window is titled "Archive Utility" (I don't see this in finder apps) & beneath it says "Unarchiving attachments such&such" I deleted those attachments. I tried dragging the window to trash. I can't force quit. It just sits there! Thanx

Hai I am Ashik. I think i can help you
Restart your computer in Safe Mode. To do this ,
Make sure that the computer is shut down. Press the power button. Immediately after you hear the startup tone, press and hold the Shift key. Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple and progress indicator
Then goto System Preferences>Accounts and click Login Items and uncheck or remove them all...
Then restart now (now you don't have restart in Safe Mode)

But I have to restart my computer you said - so I don't want to click accept until after I know if the answer helped or not. Can I just come back to this URL after I restart and you will still be there & THEN I can click accept?

Yes, thank you Ashik. When I went to the login items as you instructed, one of them was "Windows UA daemon" - which I suppose is some type of malicious intruder? The only problem after that, was that I was not able to talk to you again. I came back to this page but the only option was to accept or not. But you solved my problem, so you did a good job for me! Thank you.
