It looks like it is related to some security software that you installed on your machine.  I don't know what company or product uses the green shield logo.

You beat me to it.  It looks somewhat like Windows Defender on Windows 10 but it isn't.  I suspect that the keystroke encryption feature is turned on in whatever it is that's running.

Estelle,

 

          If it's a legitimate security program it may not be good (though it might be) but at least it's OK.

 

          If it's not it could be the beginning of something quite ugly.   Since I do not recognize the product in question on sight I can't be any more specific than that.  You may want to ask a question about this on the "Am I infected?" forum since someone there will almost certainly recognize that the screen shots you've posted are either the result of something legitimate or something not legitimate.
