Does anyone know how to get rid of that black box that sits at the bottom rhs of the screen?
It's an information box that tells you to enter your steam key if prompted and to press shift and tab to get rid of box.
Pressing shift and tab does not work for me.
Is there another way? This box sits right on top of the orders bit of the toolbar!
I know it's a Steam thing and I have posted there but have got no response but there is a Sticky saying that
if no answer then click on this link.
So here I am.

no that's the only way, are you running a admin account copy of windows?

UAC window comes up asking for permission to run anything? in steam or out of it?

without more information it's hard to just guess tbh

How to get a DirectX Diagnostic file:

1. click on "START"
2. click "run"
3. type in "dxdiag" and click "OK"
4. check through the tabs and perform all tests
5. click "Save all Information..." and save the text file to a location of your choice

We prefer that DxDiag files be posted as message attachments rather than pasted into the body of the post.

once the report has been made, just attach it to your post with first adding the file to a zip, which is then permitted to attach to the forum

That's an old forum post, zak.
Anyway the issue is related with Steam overlay, you have to disable it.

Yes, it is the Steam overlay option under properties. Sorry for not closing this down earlier guys.
Forgot all about it tbh!
