    It sounds like some sort of notification widget. What happens when you tap the icons?

    tapping on them brings what looks like a drop down that stays for a second so I don't have a chance to tap it!

    you must have downloaded some apps from the market, they installed and are complete. that is just the notification icons that the apps were downloaded and installed is all.

    Thats true or there was an update to an app as well...just pull down the notification bar and if you don't want to see this just hit the "clear" button. :)

    Oh, duh! I was picturing a widget. As others have stated those are apps that have either successfully updated or installed. Pull down the notification bar and see if it says updated or installed. Then if you don't want them, or don't want them auto-updating, you can change that in the market.

    No, they don't have to. Touch the bar at the top where the icons are (notification bar) and while keeping your finger on the screen pull it down like a window shade. The notification bar will open up and you can clear them. The "1" is a calendar event notification. A reminder from a scheduled event on your Google calendar.

    Works like this:
