go easy on my guys/gals, i should come with a warning label (that's how new i am). after messin around with everything and anything just to get to know linux and kde better, apparently i've clicked on something that i shouldn't have... i've included a picture of the anomaly: it's a message window in the top left of the screen. it pops up any time i start a program, switch between programs, move a window, etc. any guidance would be much appreciated.
EDIT: i can't post URL's since i haven't posted enough, so i've included the link to the screen shot in my sig
