[QUOTE=Wombler;2555430]You’re more than welcome.
I was thinking more of another family member or a guest in your household logging in.
If someone has logged in without having physical access to your PC then it may indeed be compromised.
Check in the control panel to see if remote access has been enabled
Then also run a full virus scan with whatever antivirus software is installed on your machine and then a full anti-spyware scan with different software (something like SpyBot Search & Destroy) and see if anything shows up.
Don’t forget to update the signatures before doing the scans.
The experts here may have additional advice for you also.
Well here is two things that do make me wonder. 1: Sometimes when I try & log in to my yahoo/at&t email account I’ve gotten this message. “You have been disconnected from Chat because another computer or devise is connected to yahoo chat”. This leaves me to believe that perhaps my daughter may have gotten my password because one time I told her I put a “Key Logger” on her notebook. Since my wifes nephew is going to school to be a IT Technician, maybe he showed her how to hack into my notebook. I sometimes leave it on because I trust that no one here would go into it. I had lost all my saved emails from June 17th & before, AT&T second level technician told me that my computer has not been compromised. He told me that after he did a remote check. 2. When I went wireless, I borrowed my sons router. It’s unsecured & that could be the problem. I do desktop & notebook repair. I’ve noticed that any Dell or HP brand notebook has a better wifi card installed. I know this because both Dell & HP can pick up between 5-8 routers by my house. Although all but one is a secured router. My MSI notebook only picks up my router. The Dell & HP’s Ive worked on were business class that originally cost over $1,500. back in 2007. They must put in better quality wifi cards. So there are the only two things I can think of, unless someone here in my area has gotten into my router since it’s unsecured.
That will change when I install my new wireless N router & have it password secured. But the task of changing my email address at AT&T will be the hard part because almost everything I do, every website I belong to has my currant email address as the contact. As much as I hate to say it, I do think that the problem is in my house. But I’ll try a spyware scan. I like eset for anti virus protection, which I plan on installing next week when I change routers but I may just have to change email addresses just the same. I’ll contact AT&T & talk to the level 2 tech department about having my yahoo email account sent to the new AT&T email account. Last, password protect my computers so no one can just login to my account. Firefox is set to remember my settings so I guess I should change that too since it leaves all my apps open to anyone who wants to browse around. As much as I suggest to people to make their systems secure, I guess I should have been practicing what I preach.
