That is not from this site, that is malware or, more likely adware that is on your computer. I believe the most common is one called ad choices or something similar. Google how to remove it. I had to do it, there are several steps. what ever you do, don't click on it, that is how you get ransomware...Mark Edit, I will check with Lary to see if it is something that we are doing, but I have never seen it. It could be a difference in the login for an admin...

I backed out, closed the window, cleared cache, and it came back. Backed out second time, and it hasn't happened for a while.

Mark, it doesn't show in the pic I posted but there is a arrow pointing to the Quick reply button on the page as a "NEW' feature Ido not believe it is adware but something the admins have installed showing the quick reply button (I could be wrong)
T-man, I have tried that, as long as I do not logout I only see it one time when I first log in and open a thread.

Admin, thanks for moving this as I was not sure where to post... is what I am seeing on opening a new thread after first logging in something you have installed for the new reply button or do I need to be concerned about having some kind of virus on my computer?
Thanks,Vern
