Im so sick and tired of this! Someone has ONCE AGAIN gone into my MSN account and changed the p.w. and secret question! I have no idea how though because the p.w. was not easy to guess and the secret question had nothing to do with the answer!!
For the people on these boards I have on MSN messenger I've sent an email with my new ID, PLEASE DONT HAND IT OUT WITHOUT MY PERMISSION! thanks

Keylogger is a computer program or hardware device specialized to record your keystrokes. It can record anything that you type, including your passwords, emails, credit card number, etc. Most keyloggers are invisible. They save the recorded keystrokes into a log file or send them to another machine.

Make sure your password reminder question isn't something someone else would already know.

Never is, I'll make the question something say... about tomb raider, and the answer would be something to do with... say... my first school or something. No-one would know it.

I'd suggest using every single spy-bot and adaware software you have. If you're lucky they will pick up on it!

Spybot and Ad-Aware won't pick up keyloggers, you have to go with another program for that.

GO HERE (http://www.trojanhunter.com/) and click on Download a Free Trial. The trial should last 30 days. TrojanHunter is the best in it's area.
