Dear Forum,

I am a new Ubuntu user - recently installed the system on my Dell Vostro 1510. I had some trouble connecting to the wireless at my workplace (university network) but with some assistance finally managed to do so; FYI, it connected fine to my home network - so not an issue with the wireless directly. However, whenever I connect to the internet, at random times a "cross"-like popup will appear on my screen for a second or two, disappear and come back. THIS ONLY SEEMS TO HAPPEN AT WORK (also see attachment):

Attachment 240051

Aside from the annoyance of having this box flash, whenever it appears everything seems to run slower. Even typing! The keys seem to become less responsive.

All the Ubuntu users I know don't seem to have this problem (and they are in the same workplace as me), so I am thinking it may be a hardware/software issue. I have the latest version of Ubuntu.

Any help would be most appreciated, but please remember that I am new to Ubuntu and still learning how it works and how to use the commandline!
