Strange green tab seems to be encrypting keystrokes near browser controls

There is a strange green tab that appears in the upper right hand corner of any browser I use, it seems to be encrypting keystokes. See attached file. This file is from my iPhone because I tried to paste a screen capture in Paint, which didn't work. So then, I tried pasting it in PowerPoint, and got only the following text:

"browser virus green box with picture of a man and orange hair"

What is weird is that the first part of that is the keystrokes i was typing into Internet Explorer at the time, but I never typed the words "picture of a man and orange hair," which seems eerily like the icon in the left part of the image.

I have run SpyBot search and Destroy and ADWCleaner -- but it is still there.

I had Funmoods search bar, which keeps on coming back as well.  

Any ideas? Thanks

call off the dogs... It was the AOL DataMask tool that was causing the tab.
