Haven't seen this one for a while.
Back when I had it happening from time to time, I would just right click a blank area of the desktop and click "Refresh" and it would just go away.
Not sure that, that will work for you but it might be worth trying.

Trouble thanks for that,yes it worked just got to wait and see if it comes back on next boot up.greyhound

Probably not on next boot, but it may very well re-appear.
That technique will generally always dismiss it.
