Message appears : "InPrivate" browsing - what is this?

  pellim 23:24 10 Sep 2014

A message appears on my laptop when I try to print out a crossword (paid for by subscription), telling me that InPrivate browsing is now in operation. It won't let me continue. I've no idea what this is or why it's appeared. I've been using Chrome but have now gone back to Internet Explorer after also getting a blue screen several times. These crashes seems to be connected with the mysterious InPrivate thing. I'd be grateful for any help.

Thank you very much, lotvic. I've got rid of the InPrivate thing. Do you know how it got there? Secondly, my Chrome browser has my homepage ( in place ,says "loading", but no page appears. In the tools menu, there's a sort of warning - "sync error, restate passphrase". Doesn't say where to do this, or which passphrase. Are you able to give me any further help?

"sync error, restate passphrase"

Take a look at this.
