It's part of the prompt string. $ is for a normal user, # for root (this 
is for Unix-like systems). Your headers indicate that you're using 
Windows (I have a nifty little extension for Thunderbird that scans 
headers for MUA information and displays the appropriate logo), so your 
prompt string will not likely have either. Anyway, don't worry about the $.
