    So recently, i dont know when this started a black box has been apearing in the upper left corner of my screen.
    It appears about every 20 seconds and only stays for about half a second. I was able to get it on a screenshot.
    If anybody can tell me what this is and how to disable it, it will be appreciated.

    Ok so the black box stopped appering but now it has started to do something else. I will attach a screenshot.

    Well, according to the screen shot, it says "C:\program files\mediainformationaccess\updater.exe" So have a look at that file path of your C drive and find out what software/program it's for. By the looks of your desktop, I'm guessing it goes to one of the programs you've downloaded and it's trying to update the app. Or what really scares me, it could be some back door that was open by one of those downloads and a hacker has taken over your computer with some malicious code that's being executed.

    Have you checked your system from any Virus, Malware, spyware, worms, trojans and so forth? I would start there and then see what programs you have downloaded and if you really need/use any of them. If not then use Revo-unsitaller Pro (it's a 30 trial but it will remove 32 and 64 bit software) to remove them completely through the advanced removal settings.

    I fixed the black box issue, but now something new has started happening. I edited the original post to show more information.
