What does the little A mean?

I've been working on a Windows ME system for 3 days. Just when I think I've got rid of all the spyware I still get POP-UPs. One thing I've noticed is when I click on an item in the IE browser normally the little Microsoft flag waves to indicate it's making the connection. I'm not familiar with ME but on this system the flag waves, the world turns, and I see what looks to be a lower case 'a' in the box. I'm assuming this means there is something on the system that I don't know about.

Also, is there a FAQ that tells the best process for getting rid of spyware, i.e., stop Restore, run in Safe Mode, run Microsoft updates, which program to run first, ...... ?

Can you help?

Thanks in advance.

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
