    Email hacked?
    How do I know if my email is being hacked and if it is how do I prevent it. In the last few months emails have been sent to all of my contacts in my address book and then their addresses get deleted. I can recover the addresses but an email goes out to everyone, usallay about shopping or something else. I have changed my password. Thanks

    You have a virus. What anti-virus program do you use?

    Ghost has nothing to do with anti-virus. And if you have NAV 2002, its way outdated.

    I'm pretty sure it is newer than that. I checked my computer and the firewall, automatic updates and virus protection are all on and I am running a virus scan right now to see if there is anything that it can find.
