someone in my house goes to my log in page and goes to my computer then toolbar.htm. what are they doing?


The toolbars are normally getting information of your surf on the internet. Many toolbars for your browser are already infected with a virus (I did get a virus throu a toolbar) when you install them, this can leave your computer open for hackers. If you use a safe toolbar like google and Live toolbar then it is safe, but other toolbars like them you install when you install a screensaver are many times infected with a virus :O/

IF it is your own internet site you have made, I suggest you chance your password and see if it still happend. IF it do that please contact your site provider and tell them about the problem, it can bee dangerous let other in on your internet site, they can leave virus codes on your toolbar and other places. :O/

Hope that helps
