    immovable black bar on screen


    I have an immovable black bar in the upper left side of my screen whenever i am watching a video. it has a play/pause button and the title of what I am watching and a volume indicator. I can't get rid of it or even drag it somewhere more out of the way. I can get it to leave by restarting but it comes back shortly. Anybody else have this problem on their pc?

    :)
