Open the note in Acrobat and see if it's got any content, which could be a clue.

A FrameMaker hypertext marker that contains the command "alert" or "alerttitle" is converted to an Acrobat note. You can use Edit > Find to search for markers of type hypertext. Keep the Special > Marker window open while you search, and you'll see the content of the selected marker. It's possible that the alert marker was accidentally inserted, but has no content. Delete the marker and recreate the PDF.

Using Acrobat Reader and
Distiller, Version 5 on Windows 2K OS. PDFs were working fine, used PM7
to create them. All of a sudden, started getting a little yellow
"notes" or "comments" icon on the top left corner of the document.
Tried everything to get it to go away, but can't figure out how I should
be configuring the export or Adobe options, etc. Can anyone tell me how
to get rid of this nuisance, please?
