RE: 3 dongle

sounds like either overkeen security software, or some kind of system hijack. Or maybe someone else with access to the machine thinks you're spending too much time online

RE: 3 dongle

Logging in usually requires that you access a secure web page https://... So it looks as if you have a problem with https. There are several possible causes, some of which Jon mentioned. In the first instance I suggest you try a different web browser. The four most famous browsers are Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Apple safari.
