Everytime an image loads on ANY web page this icon appears. It happens with both Firefox and Netscape. I assume it is some sort of advertising spyware or something. I have run Spybot, Ad-Aware, Spyware Doctor, & Trend Micro Anti-Spy, but none of them have solved the problem. I have done everything I can think of. If anyone has any other suggestions I would appreciated it.

Thank You!!

Edit: Auto Image Loading was checked. Thanks for the suggestion!!
Also, When I run Firefox in Safe Mode the annoying red diamond is gone...
i donno what this might mean.

To me, it looks like auto loading of images is turned off.

for firefox, click Tools, Options, The content tab, and make sure the load images box is checked, click ok.

For Internet Explorer, Start, Control Panel, Network and Internet Connections, Internet options, click the advanced tab, scroll down to multimedia, check the show pictures , uncheck the show download placeholders, click apply, click ok.

Let us know the results.
