    When I opened the browser a word popped up, it was a curse word, then it said "good job to all the diggers out there"

    I probably gotten hacked overnight, I left Utorrent on all night long to dl a file and maybe that was the problem. I am kinda nervous here since this is my banking computer and my paypal that I save with roboform.

    My security is

    Mcafee Internet Suite 8
    trend micro spyware

    those are the only real time with ewido as backup, that's it.

    Now if I did get hacked I am changing everything to totally different products, I will also ditch netscape 8.1 for something else.

    Where to start the process of checking to see if I really gotten hacked?

    Hi, if u P2P, i doublt any software can keep ur OS clean, if i will use torrents, I will sure use a sandbox, virtual environment or RollbackRx or FDISR etc.
