On my screen at present on the bottom R/H corner above the task bar is a row of icons and will try to explain what they look like.There are seven the first is a small letter T on a green background the 2nd a small F on a blue background the 3rd I am not sure what the symbol is it could be a small G with a + by the side on a black background the 4th is the word IN on a blue background the 5th looks like the power symbol on a remote control it is red on a white background the 6th says YOU TUBE on a red background ansd the last is a orange square with three curved white lines.There is a X at the beginning of the row.Has anyone else had or got these symbols or knows what they mean.Thought it might be something to do with google

Is this on the web page or on the desktop? If its only this site then that is the links pop-up for different social media for PCA. If on the desktop then right click and select properties, should give info.

Hi rdave13 Yes it is actually on the web page and yes it only seems to appear on PCA.When I right click on it and then click on properties it does say PC Advisor and HyperText Transfer Protocol with Privacy.I do not recall seeing this before has it always appeared and do you get it.Not sure now whether it is on the web site because when I scroll up or down it stays there.

They are part of the PCA site and as rdave13 suggests they are links to PCA's pages on Twitter, Facebook, GooglePlus etc. No, they were not always there - they are part of the ongoing improvements to this PCA site.

Hmm, for improvements, I would have put changes ........ though I know the back-room boys are doing their best.

Yes, it's the new pca bottom of page sticky Social Bar, though mine disappeared a couple of weeks ago and I've not seen it since. I don't get the red bar at top either anymore but I think that pca took that off. I haven't changed anything.....

lotvic, I might be wrong, but it doesn't appear now as we run spywareblaster. If you run under compatibility view in IE then it shows up again.
