I would recommend running the Latest Getsusp. Please enter your Email Address under "Preferences" before scanning. I would then run Malwarebytes (Free) Do not try the (Free trial offer/or Activate) the Free Version will suffice. You might even follow up with running AdwCleaner as well.

All the Best,
Thanks, I found the answer. Apparently, its a new Windows 10 thing. Which allows you to check that you've typed in the correct password???? Don't check it while in remote assistance though!!! Lol Thanks for your speedy response and assistance with this though.
There is no such thing as Windows 10, can you clarify that last remark please? Perhaps a link to the info might help?
You are welcome, Glad that all is okay.....
Oops! Sorry. This is what I should have written.
The password eye is a new feature in Internet Explorer 10 (IE10). If you click on the password eye, what you have typed will show up to enable you to check the typing of your password. The password will only show up while the mouse button is pressed - as soon as you release the button your typing will disappear.
Some security considerations when using the password eye:
- Be wary of anyone looking over your shoulder.
- Avoid using it if your computer is being accessed remotely (by for example a tech support person) - even if it’s a trustworthy company. In fact, I would avoid typing any password into a IE10 box that has a password eye during a remote access session.
- Do not leave your computer unattended with the password box filled in (but not submitted).
Ah now I understand. OK. What operating system are you using (and service pack if applicable)? The reason I ask is that IE10 should not be installed if you have Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8 or 8.1, all of those you should upgrade IE to IE11 asap for security reasons. This applies even if you use another browser.
so, not really a smiley at all then? A totally different icon?
The feature can be disabled and I did ages ago and completely forgot it existed.
