Go to a friends place, use their puter, and download Spybot and one of the other trojan deleters available online. Load them in your PC and run them. Install a good virus scanner, firewall, cookie cruncher etc.

Change your email addy. Tip: I have a number of email addy's, and I only ever use one or two for online, newsgroups etc. As soon as I start getting spam, I delete it and make up another. My friends and business use two addy's I'm quite protective of.

I'd also contact your ISP as was suggested, and pass on the emails etc, and see what they can do about it, even if it's simply giving you a new IP if yours is fixed.

Good luck

Thumbs up hacker

software firewall's blow. u can pick up a cheap router for $99
that has a firmware firwall and u can update the firmware
and share your internet. i got 4 pc's running plus a a big server
with a webpage.on one cable modem. the router keeps a log
of ip's that are sending packets to you. you just grab the ip
and use trace rout to find the bugger.and than if he keep it up
report it to your isp. or you could just give me the ip

dos attacks hurt

and for the warning

dont try this at home you can loose your cable modem

Default Firewalls.

Hi,

There is no such thing as a hardware firewall.
Admittedly a router offers better protecting than a firewall run locally.

No need to be a genius to understand that?

Ciao,

You can give everyone their legs back.

A router with NAT will provide far better protection than any software firewall run on a user's machine.

your router must be old. mine is firmware flash it should be it cost $250 or just use zone alarm i get more hacked pc's in and make more money.or you could make your own with a old p90 and a floppy no harddrive needed.2 network cards. u can get a linx firwall on floppy. hard to setup but works great

things like loadqm running in the background leaves your pc wide
open for hackers

its part of yahoo messenger just remove it from start up

msconfig it

Did he have one running?

No, obviously not.
What else you have in mind that could, eventually, possibly, maybe have prevented this?

Either way, curing something is about a 1.000 times harder than preventing it.

Cheers,
