Hob is another name for  the male ferret.

The word ferret is also a verb as in to "ferret out the facts",
and so we did...

polonus

Well, thanks for ferreting out the facts.   ;D

Simplest thing to do is to conduct a search of all .gif files on your computer.  Use this for a search parameter:  *.gif   and right-click your found picture to select "more".  Select additional properties to display as needed.   Where is the picture stored?

*.gif in search box


It's stored in my pictures...

Find out where the .gif file is located on your system and report back.  Don't delete anything just yet.

I'm assuming you have Windows 7 on your system.  If not, let us know.

I can't find Orb but I found the image.  I do have Windows 7

Rebooted my computer a few minutes ago and was greeted with the red HI again.   I have Weatherbug and  there was a red HI with sunflowers around it and it said "Welcome to Ohio."  As I mentioned before we are going to Ohio on Sat. to see my husband's son who's in a Hospital in Cincinnati.  I find this to be a little creepy.

If you find it creepy, get rid of Weatherbug.
You know where it's coming from. Either except it or get rid of the program that's causing it.
I think this post has run it's course.  :)

I like Weatherbug so I'm not going to get rid of it.

That's fine but then stop complaining about the pop up.
