That's a spyware problem on your end. Try running SpyBot S&D.

It's malware.. and it might depend upon what browser you are using where you find the icky beast.  Here's some tips for Flamingvixen on where to look http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/937969

I had that on my old Toshiba, nothing appeared on my scans either. I had to take it to a shop. I got mine from a freebie game...stupid Vampires vs Zombies...

It's not something I'm doing or the software is doing.
