    Help Please, I put my comp into standby and went out for a while, it was connected to the internet. When I returned and saw my messenger which was ON too, It showed the message that 'You have signed in from another device'. I tried signin in but got an invalid password error. It looks like someone has hacked my password. I got a mail in my Gmail account (alternate email address in Y! profile) that my pass has changed but it didnt reveal the pass. It though revealed that the IP of the person was
    [64.186.88.95].

    Now please help me how to get my pass back, I dont exactly remember the date of birth I had entered in it. How can I get my pass back. And how do I see 'Event Viewer' if that helps...

    No nobody was in house when i went out.

    Scan in progress. will update as it gets over. thnx.

    But I didnt find any fishy services residing on my comp. Can it be more likely that somebody knowing my password has hacked it? But it was way too strong for anyone to know, even my friends... It wasnt personal...

    The chances for ur password getting back are dim.Since ur hacked, chances are that the person might have changed ur dob and profile entries too. So better concentrate what has gone wrong!
    Neway are u on some shared cable internet like sify? coz chances of being hacked on that are too high since ur password is in readable format and passing thru sify gateway, and also ur pc is open to others on shared network!

    I guess u keep same password for lot of accounts and stored somewhere. I'm guessing this becoz i maself hacked ma friends pass and to ma amazement he ws using that pass for a lot of other accounts, but he's ma friend so i told hime to better change that and secure his passes!

    I can tell u some techniques to get it back, but u have to learn them urself.....u better pm me for that...coz its againt forum rulez to openly discuss that or better i'll give u ma yahoo id!

    Neways u shud try calling yahoo ( i duuno how to do that) if that id is of extreme importance!
