red square in box

by justmeflo / December 13, 2004 11:09 PM PST

When I go to certain sites all I get is a blank page with a little red square in a box in the right hand corner.. An example is if I go to I get a black page with a square in the left hand corner.
Can someone help me get rid of that and get my web pages??
Thanks for your time.
