    Default weird grey/red toolbar with coordinateWhem i touch screen

    Very weird thing happened all if a sudden. At the top of my screen over the tool bar is a gray and Res bar that has coordinates that change when I touch the screen and I also am having a thing that pops on where ever I touch. Any one else having this problem?

    go under accessibility options and somewhere in there you should see "show where I touch" and turn it off. It should solve the problem. How it got on in the first place is yours alone....

    Can you do a screen shot showing what you're talking about?

    I will post a screenshot when I get home. I don't think it's the accessibility thing

    Im ed. That was it. I have no clue how it got turned on but that was on and debugging was turned off. It was under developer options.

    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks piizzadude! I started having same problem today but I know about that feature and am sure I didnt turn it on. Also under Developer Options "Show CPU usage" was turned on which was also being displayed on screen & I didn't check that one either. Could I have malware that would've turned those features on?

    I doubt it...

    More and more it seems as if some settings are randomly turning on or off recently. Not sure what is going on there. It isn't limited to Samsung either So I am guessing that it is something with ICS but since I am not an Android Dev, it is just an educated guess on my part

    I just had the same thing happen to my phone!!!! Googled the problem and thank goodness you had had the same weird experience. Lol. It was in my "Developer Options" under "Settings"...turned off "Shoe pointer location". Whoo hoo!

    Just had the same happen to me.

    Had the pointer coordinates turned on, as well as the "CPU usage", which looked like it was scrolling code down the right hand side.

    Thanks, KP. Used your description to find the stuff to turn off and make the problems go away.
