I don't go to EE's Homepage so I don't even get any ads.
The only icons I see is that "ScanAlert" and EE's Ten Years icon.
and of course the Page Editor pic, apart from the EE Xs :)

It's normal, until you log in. Then you don't get it.

(If you're not a paid member nor an "expert" then you may get it even after you log in, I am not sure about that).

While the EE popups are certainly annoying, and I am always amused that advertisers think anyone would actually buy their products after being annoyed by their popups, they are not spyware.

If you turn ON the popup blocking feature in IE most of them will be suppressed.
