As mentioned by Jason and Donna, this is indeed caused by an installed 
toolbar - most likely Google or Yahoo.  I've found that the Yahoo bar is 
much more likely to sneak onto a PC, as it's bundled with Flash player.

I often have clients call and ask about the highlighted fields and I 
just explain that it's caused by their own software!
