Ok so as from today for some reason any site i log into with name and password has on the end of the log in box an "icon"

when entering email add\name its a x when entering a password its like a dot with a half circle over it?

Ive fully updated my windows 7 last night so is this something to do with updates and can it be removed

thanks

You click on that 'eye' icon to show the password entered . A way of checking if you've typed it correctly.

Should have added that the 'x' is for clearing the name.

It's been like that for a while for me.

Any idea where its come from is it an update in windows or something? Its not only on here on other sites as well

No idea. It's the same for me logging on to Amazon, Argos etc.

I noticed these appeared when I upgraded from IE9 to IE10.
