Hi Geeks! Fellow geek at a loss. My pc has started to superimpose the youtube video normal sized box [the one you first get to] on whatever app window I'm running at the time. In the top left hand corner. I'm more interested in what might cause this than just stopping it. :D
XP Pro, SP3, all updates; HP 2x3GHz Pavilion tower.
Any ideas?

Here's a pic. The video bit flickers about twice a second.
The app it's over here is Audacity.

Audacity has been on for ages.The problem is very recent.
The same problem occurs with word and excel.
