Tablet PC Input Panel

Hi Experts,

Over the last couple of days, I have noticed this program in my system tray. Once, it opened on my desktop, I have been unable to remove it.

Is this a virus, a system file or what? Is it a key logger? How do I get rid of it, and has it done anything to damage my computer?

Thanks.

Bert

It is part of Windows...
Right click on open space of taskbar -> click Toolbars -> UN-check Tablet PC Input Panel
Or, to uninstall it, do Start -> Control Pane > classic view -> Programs and Features  -> left column, click Turn Windows Features On or Off -> acknowlege the uac prompt -> wait for loading -> scroll and locate Tablet PC Optional Components -> uncheck it -> OK

Hi Davis McCarn,

You are awesome. I am sure it was a simple thing for you, but it saved me at least a day. Your second method took it right off the desktop. I have no idea how it got on my desktop in the first place. And, it isn't like I haven't used the Control Panel Home before.

When I  Googled it, I get everything from part of the computer system to a virus to a key logger. There were free scans to look for damage to your computer and ways to get rid of it through various means including removing registry keys.

Anyway, thanks very much for your answer. If you have any idea why it went from being unchecked to checked, please fill me in.

Thank you.

No wonder I can't fix things. I can't even remember to accept the solution. Sorry for the delay. Thanks again.
