Internet Explorer doesn't require a password. What website are you trying to logon to? I can only guess your computer is infected or bogged down with a bunch of crapware.

Hi! riider,i may have worded my prob. wrong,i will try another way of explaining :) when I open pc from shut down mode,i have set a password, reason being, that I am the only one that can log onto my pc,have few gremlims in house lol,anyway,when the welcome sighn comes up,the little circle spins for ages before I am into my home page,i should not have little bugs as it just cost a fortune for Norton ....

"the little circle spins for ages before I am into my home page"
You normally end up on the desktop first, from there you select your browser (Internet Explorer) which takes you to your homepage. So I am still not sure when this "spinning" takes place. Unless someone has set IE to open with Windows somehow.

Did this suddenly start happening and if so was it after doing something (such as installing Norton)?

Whatever AV you have it is no guarantee that you are virus free. If you want a quick check for viruses then this freebie is good at finding and fixing what AV's miss:

For the future, there are quite adequate free Anti-Virus programs which anyone can recommend on this forum.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I think the OP is getting the terminology mixed up. I think they mean their desktop, not homepage.

@Derek and riider: I believe the "spinning" the OP is referring to is when you login to a Windows 7 computer and you see "Welcome" with the spinning blue circle next to it. Like this: http://www.subodh.com/Portals/2/ass...

You should have only 1 real-time anti-malware program (often just called an "anti-virus") and you should have at least 1 on-demand anti-malware program (I suggest both Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware). "On-demand" meaning it only updates/scans when you tell it to, which you should be doing weekly. As for real-time anti-malware programs go, Norton stinks. When it comes to home users, if you're paying for an anti-virus, you're overpaying. Consider the free versions of BitDefender, Avast, Avira, or AVG.

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.
