if you have been hacked the information and data on your laptop is gone, copied or up for ransom
changing you pass word will prevent future attacks
the hackers got in on a link or by some other method and did not need your pass word
use a high quality anti virus program and do a full scan on the laptop to rid hidden virus, trojan or malware problems left by the hackers

My computer was hacked, phone was synched. Hacker made herself admin. She changed my password. Computer is with tech now but he needs account info so he can remove hack. How do I get this info now?

if the" tech "cant get into the system
and change admin setting
try another tech
would say the hacker has changed the permissions and locked it

better for you ,to format the hard drive and re install the version windows or linx what ever
and make a much stronger password

Someone keeps hacking my account, how can I stop this?

If your getting hacked you must first start with changing your email password and all other passwords. First run a good virus scan on your PC in Administrator mode. Then if you find anything remove it a re run a scan, Change all passwors for all accounts. Make sure you have a good firewall not windows firewall. Comodo is great and free. Make sure others arent getting onto your pc with out your knowing happens a lot. Make passwords hard numbers and letters.

Well, there are few things u can do:
1. click the forget password link and get the password back (this would be useful if the hacker didn't change ur email address or missed up with ur personal info. because maybe you will be asked about this info.)
2. make a new account with gmail ( as some of my friends tell me it wont be able to be hacked from other regions , I didnt try it)

I have just found out my msn account has been hacked and someone has changed my password. Since then, there are imappropriate pictures of myself sent to all my contacts. What do I do ? macqueen...

try changing your password by enetering your security info, if you cant change your password by using the security info you set before then email msn using the original account you used to setup the email address with. If you can do neither of the two then you are out of luck, apart from emailing msn and threatening to sue them if they dont stop the pictures from being sent

My ID is hacked

The best solution would be to remove all your private information.
Delete it or forward it to another account. You can create a new account to transfer this info.

After you have done this, stop using the account.
If possible close the hacked account.

Preventing further attacks:

In the new account you have created and transferred your data from the old account, always change your password, or set a password with both lower and upper case, the password should also contain numbers.
For example "daNy47Q"

Most hackers use key loggers to hack into user accounts, so when entering your password, do not enter the password in the order it appears. for example, if your password is "john" type jhon, then erase then type the password again in the right way "john".
This will confuse the hackers, and will keep access to your account safe.

Thank you for using Fixya,
