Strange bar on my Mac.

I have this strange brown/black bar on my Mac that is telling me everything that the Mac is doing. I can't get rid of it, and I can't even use Grab to take a picture of it. Seems an awful lot like a Malware program. Anyone have any idea of what I'm talking about, and what to do?


Model Name: iMac
Model Identifier: iMac5,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.16 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 4 MB
Memory: 3 GB
Bus Speed: 667 MHz
Boot ROM Version: IM51.0090.B09
SMC Version (system): 1.9f4
Serial Number (system): W86468BFVUV
Hardware UUID: 00000000-0000-1000-8000-0017F2C75549

Thanks,

Try taking a full screenshot with the Command-Shift-3 key. I've found that can get things Grab can't.

PS: It isn't malware.

It's Voice Over. You can turn it off by pressing CMD+fn+f5. You might have to leave out the fn key.

Well, you can turn it on with the same key combination or through system preferences.

Like I said You are my hero, and I love the internet. Thank-you. I don't know if there is any realistic way for me to repay you, but I am a believer in Karma, and somehow I think you have probably earned a LOT of points in the world of Karma believers

Thanks again!

Joe
