numbers popping up on monitor

I am having numbers popping up on my monitor screen page then disappearing,again popping up. They don't stay on permanentely,just for a few seconds,then disappear,then reappear beside word text. i'm using internet explorer with yahoo as my browser. windows XP home.
This just started. I suspect i must have clicked on something to do this.

Any ideas as to how i can get the numbers to go away?

thanks

I would start with the usual virus and spyware scan.

Hi Chris,
Good call on virus scan ansd spyware scan. McAfee came up with nothing,but Ad-aware had some some stuff. deleted out 'bugs' and everything is as it should be so far.
Thanks ,

Oops!..... Darn numbers came back. They appear only(for now) using Internet Explorer. The numbers appear randomly beside icons that i could click on. As i said earlier,they come and go. I'm wondering if there is a task bar tool setting that might be clicked on,or off.

Why don't you post a picture of these numbers so we know what you are talking about.

this is my browser page. As luck would have it the numbers didn't show up. The #'s in parenthesis are my doing to illustrate how these #'s appear, minus the parenthesis. They occur all over the page.
