    Strange. I've never seen that from here.

    Just got rid of it using SuperAntispyware.

    There is. When you press on "login" and see 3 dots not stoping it means there is captcha inside a query. You could right click on login and get direct URL. Paste it and you will see a captcha.

    Now it's back again, but only if I don't use my VNP? Why does it appear only when I'm not using my VNP?

    @Nekto2 - I'm not sure I understand what you mean? Are you saying this is normal or something? I never used to get it even without using a VNP.

    Because when you use VPN it thinks you are a bot ;)

    Another thing can be if your PC's true IP address is hidden by your network - so if, for example, you use a Netgear-based home network it will show your address as something like 192.168.0.1 - which the site software knows is not a genuine PC address, so it challenges you with a CAPTCHA, to make sure you are not one of thousands of bots that roam the net, trying to get in where they are not wanted. Probably a bit of a loose description, but that's the gist of it.

    Right pain the fekkin arse, CAPTCHAs can be.

    PS - one solution is to stay logged in.

    Copy "Sign In" link instead of clicking on it (if you can't log in).

    You will get captcha.

    It is not ok with "sign in" button. You can't see it, but "sign in" is not working if there is captcha inside.
