    Hi guys I visited a web page last night, then my AVG told me I had the above worm/virus, I immediately ran the AVG and it locked the files in the "Virus Vault"

    I am really new to this so could use some help.

    Does this mean the files are locked up ? or are they deleted ?

    Secondly would this worm/virus allow someone to hack my pc ?

    The reason I ask is my hotmail account was hacked 2 times within 24hours, the 1st time they got my password to login, so i went on and changed it again with my secret question. Then they hacked me again, and got the answer to my secret question correct!

    I am running the Free downloaded version of zonealarm.

    So I have no idea how the heck they managed to hack my pc. Although perhaps I had set it up wrong.

    Any advice or help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    P.S My hotmail account being hacked wasnt a major thing really, I did have emails on there, but thy werent critical to my life, however many had great sentimental value to me, and now I've lost those.

    Thanks for help/support.
