That sounds like the standard border that MSIE:win (and most other browsers)
apply to images that are also links. You can get rid of it the same way would
get rid of it for other linked images on your pages. e.g. you could specify:

  a img {border: 0px}

in your style sheet.

This suggests your browser is either not sending a HTTP Referer header field,
or something is stripping it off before the request gets to the Validator.
Most likely this is either a proxy server or a personal firewall product if
you have such installed (the latter on your machine, the former on your
network somewhere). Consult your system administrator or ISP tech support for
further help with that issue (feel free to refer them to this list or me
personally if they need further information).
