    Recently when mounting a protected DMG the virtual keyboard (don't know a better way to describe it) has been popping up on my screen. I can't find any settings in system prefs that could be causing this to happen, but it's becoming really annoying.

    Also, I tried searching, but I didn't have any luck. Thanks for any help folks can offer to fix this.

    I think I've begun to narrow down when this happens, but I still can't find a solution.

    Anytime I mount a DMG or try to install something that requires a password, the virtual keyboard/character viewer pops up. I initially turned it on to see how to add an accent to a word, but then I thought I turned it off. Clearly I didn't.

    Here are screengrabs of the two preference panes having to do with the keyboard; maybe I need to delete a file somewhere to rebuild something; I don't know.

    I'm not at my Mac right now, but take a look around the Accessibility system preference pane - it may well be in there.
