Every time my browser loads an image this icon shows up in the corner. It happens no matter which browser im using. (firefox - netscape - ie)

I don't know what I may have done to cause this, or how to get rid of it.

Any suggestions are much appreciated!

To me, that looks no more like spyware than the red X that normally is in place of it does, But, I could be wrong, Have you tried running scans from lke spybot or adaware? If so what did it say?

edit: I almost remember having an issue like this before, and I think it was spyware, Do a scan just in cas,e See what it comes back as

I can't remember the issue itself, but I remember that it had something to do with things that were installed from online sources unknowingly
