Flashing black box at bottom of screen

I have an irritating flashing black box with text that repeatedly appears at the bottom of my screen that I am unable to close or acknowledge. Reading left to right the word 'auto' followed by three triangular dots with a plus sign followed by a square with the letter M in the rbottom right hand corner followed by a symbol which appears to show a female and male plug (?) apart. Any ideas folks. Run a scan on AVG and all clear. Thanks

Seems to be trying to tell you that some item trying to be communicated with is Unplugged, has it started to happen after you have had an ext usb device connected then removed? Could be some sort of backup manager seeking an external harddrive to write data to.
