Orange flash

Hi All, I have an odd problem. When I am using Virginmedia email system (with an ntlworld address) an orange "block" maybe 2 inches by 1/2 inch occasionally appears at the bottom of the screen for a TINY fraction of a second then "slides" down out of sight. It may have slid up in the first place. It is almost as though "subliminal" messaging or advertising was taking place but I have no idea what (and it may or may not have text on it) I have scanned the system with Avast and with Malwarebytes but to no effect. Does anyone else suffer from this admittedly benign but mysterious problem?

Re: Orange flash

Yes - it's a simple message that tells you may have an issue with web mail. The one I have seen most frequently is "server problem" because that is what there is at the moment, an intermittent server problem. No need to worry. and it flashes so quickly because the problem comes and goes so quickly.
