I used to use the Speakable Items feature. Every time I would start my computer up a 'ball' would appear in the upper right hand side of the screen and it would let me know that the feature was running.


Now I do not use the feature and I have turned it off in System Preferances BUT the 'ball' still pops up on the screen. As far as I know everything having to do with the microphone is also turned off.


How do I go about removing it from the screen? I know I can douible click it each time the computer boots up, but that like a band-aid aproach to remove it. How do I keep it from appearing in the first place? Thanks.

Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion, (10.8.1)
