    Sounds to me like your computer's pretty much owned.

    You could start by telling us what OS and what defensive programs - specifically - that you're using, and whether you've updated them and run full scans with ALL of them lately. Pete

    Kinda creepy, do what Spy1 says, that is the best way to get help, too little information is given. Some questions to ask yourself, that might help pin down WHERE and WHAT -

    1. Where have you been going? Chat rooms, IM's, Kazaa and the cuzzins?
    2.You sure it isn't a friend's idea of a joke?
    3. Parents?

    Don't just take it - get help - Wilder's is a good starting point!! :)

    Go here and do scan http://www.ewido.net/en/ .
    I would suggest getting an antivirus like ArcaVir 2005 or NOD32 as well.

    Let us know the results please.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Are you using an anti-virus program?

    Is it totally updated?

    Does it run resident (active) in SYSTRAY?

    Have you done a full scan with it lately?

    Did that scan come up clean?

    Have you disabled Windows Messenger?

    Do you run a firewall? A router?

    (I wasn't referring to anti-scumware programs, I was referring to things like your A/v and any A/T (anti-trojan) programs you might be running). Pete

    Thanks to everybody who has some input in the problem I've been having..I've got multiple PC'S so I'm having a little difficulty in answering some of your questions..What I'll do within the next day or two is gather the information you've all requested and be back..Thank you all so much for your insights.
