    Hello,

    I need help identifying the first symbol in the picture. It likes to appear here and there. When it does appear, I will click on it but it disappears. Does anyone know what the icon is?

    Thanks

    The screen shot is pretty small, but it looks like it could be a microphone. You can check the following locations for apps that automatically launch on startup see if it reveals a possible culprit:
    • System Preferences > Users & Groups > yourusername > Login Items (SL and older: System Preferences > Accounts > yourusername > Login Items)
    • In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > /Library/LaunchAgents
    • In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > ~/Library/LaunchAgents
    • In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > /Library/StartupItems
