The red light indicates that the hard drive is working (writing or reading data).  It is normal for this to flicker when the computer is running.  However, if it is on constantly or close to it, it can indicate the activity of unwanted programs (spyware or virus).  
Spyware is the most likely reason you also cannot send emails or chat online.  I would recommend bringing your computer in to a tech somewhere that can perform a virus/spyware clean for you.

No idea.
Does your computer work ok?
Can you go online?
Can you send and receive emails?
Have you checked your FB settings, there may have been an update, sometimes it resets to default settings after an update

Someone has gotten all my contacts off my computer and is sending spam and links using my email address, HELP


This is the main reason why you are getting all this spam email. 95% of all junk mail you get is because you gave your email address to somebody, somehow, somewhere.

Ask yourself to whom you gave your email address.

Examples to whom you disclosed your email address

Online Forums
News Groups
Sign-ups software downloads
From IRC and chat rooms
Your homepage
Your business card
White & yellow pages
Your friends!
This list only contains the main sources where you disclose your email address.

Other sources of Spam Email

Through Mail Relaying
Mail Relaying is sending mail to a user that is not local to the server you have connected to. It slows down your email and gives spammers free bandwidth.

Through dictionary attacks
This happens when spammers connect to your server and just trying random address or even stepping through the alphabet. Some servers will block the sending server after X number of failures, some set max recipients per message and others set a delay between recipients to slow down the spammer, causing them to go elsewhere.

Through the selling of e-mail addresses
Companies sell your information to other companies.

Trojans/Script capturing
By using HTML e-mails, spammers can confirm your email address. Best to disable preview window and delete the message. You can disable HTML or even block the email client from communicating on port 80.

Thanks

Have a great day.

I just started working with computers need to check emails and how to go chat


Firstly, do you have an email account. Sites like yahoo.com, hotmail.com and gmail (Google.com) are quite popular and free. After you have signed up for an email account you are now ready to send and receive email. To chat you can either Google search for any online chat rooms. Just simply Google search "Chat rooms" and follow instructions from there.

You may also, if you signed up for yahoo or hatmail or even gamil, connect to other users via instead messenger and talk to family and friends you have added to your account. You must download the IM messenger first. Yahoo Chat seems popular.

Let me know if I could be of any further help.

Downloading and Chat rooms


there is a way to get free games, but they are only demos.To get these demos,you need the wii with an internet connection,then on your wii you need to download the Nintendo Channel . there are no free games for the ds as of now.

Chat room do not use the internet .Its only for ds to ds for now, hopefully later they will put some thought into making it an online chat room. Without using the internet for the ds you have to be within 10meters (30feet) otherwise it wont work.
