    Hey everybody,

    so, not sure what I did, but recently these little windows pop up that tell me what certain applications are doing. Currently they show up when I change a song in itunes a last.fm window pops up to tell me the song changed, and it also pops up in skype it pops up telling me the other person is typing and when they send there message. It's probably something really dumb that I didn't realize I did, but I can't seem to figure it out.

    They are all the last.fm windows covering the screen. They usually don't show up in that mass amount, but I just skipped through itunes so a bunch of them would show up and get the point across

    System Preferences > Growl

    You have likely installed Growl and it's enabled for all apps

    thanks, i don't remember ever installing it, but it may have come along with another program or something.

    CS5 installs Growl automatically

    That's what we're here for... ;)

    I did install CS5 too, and only found out via that thread, thus I was dumb before, but now that I am wise, I can understand.
