    Presently my IBM is downloading something...right click/left click do not show properties etc.
    Only the YELLOW SHIELD with ! icon.
    "Downloading updates 73 %"
    An hour or so ago it was 60 %.
    I have run a full NORTON Ad-Aware and ewido scan...they have not identified this.
    Should I be worried?
    Can someone help?

    Is that icon is in your system tray? --- it's likely a M$ update. ;) ... Can you post a screenshot of the icon?

    From what you have described, it does seems like a Windows Update tray icon. Perhaps you can use your firewall or "netstat -b" to see the active connection. See whether there is any connection to Microsoft/Windows Update site.
