I just got a message to download INBOX for a message. Was this from E-hell?

When someone sends me a PM the email reads "New Personal Message Re: (Subject). The sender is from Etiquette Hell and I don't know who sent it until I open the email.

I've never gotten a message to download an Inbox from here. Who was the sender?

You got this message in your forum messaging in box?   If you did, it's a spammer and I need the name of who it is so I can ban its sorry behind.   If you got it in your personal email in box, I can't help you other than to say it didn't come from Ehell.

I see it as a banner ad on top of the forum pages.  The ad has an envelope with a red "1" that makes it "look" like you have a message.  At least for me, it isn't an actual message in my ehell inbox.

Thank you Cass and E-hell Dame.
It was as the other poster said, I was a big pink box near the top of the page, so I'm guessing it was an AdChoice banner that somehow got enlarged. I had just lost connection to E-hell and was suddenly a guest, so I thought I had done something wrong and was being contacted. I was able to re-connect to E-hell but unfortunately downloaded the file which was a mess.  I believe it was a toolbar for IE, but have successfully removed it and my viral scan was OK.

If ever a Mod is trying to contact me, I'll figure it must come through the "my messages" above.

By the way, Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays.

OP, I'm glad it was solved and Thank Admin and JEsMom  for the help :)

I'm sorry you had to clear out your computer system, but, at least you now know
