    I tried to login just now to check my balance but am challenged for a username/password (not the usual one at the home screen). Is that happening to you?

    No. Only home screen. Maybe a problem with browser/computer has been compromised?

    Yes another computer works. Must be just the machine.

    Thanks for checking.

    You may also have a virus that specifically brings up that screen when the PayPal address is entered into your Browser. Do you use IE? If so, try another browser like Firefox and see if it happens. Under no circumstances should you enter info in that field. Key phrase popping up: "without a secure connection". Also report this to PayPal.

    My account is fine.

    Dont enter anything in that of course. Those logins windows are scary looking.

    I suspect trojan but it also could be your browser settings.

    Dude that window screen looks like a virus. DO NOT enter anything in that.
