Password question on XP
I have heard that there is a trojan that when you type in your passwords instead of it appearing as a "dot" it appears as a bar. This is the case with my pc. When I log into things on IE, such as this site, it appears as solid dots, however, when I log on using roboform (a password autofill program) the password appears as blocks. Also, I signed up for a new yahoo ID, and during the sign up process, it asks for a password, that too, is in blocks. But when I log into yahoo, the password appears as dots. I have an antivirus program installed, I ran the trendmicro scan, and I have also ran the trojanscan.com also. Any ideas? Install a software firewall and track usage maybe? I have an actual router with a firewall built in.
