Question about Acer Aspire M1641-U1521A PC Desktop
You don't need a replacement hard drive, if you want to be safe just format the hard drive and reinstall windows, linux which ever one you use and make sure you download a good firewall like zone alarm to block hackers and make sure you run a scan from a virus program like avg or avast etc once a week to kill any virus's lefted by the hacker you mentioned. Hope this helps.

You are not alone! You do have a serious but fixable issue, contact your ISP or email service providers and alert them to the hack. Unless they can assist you with changing the passwords then you will have to abandon those accounts. You providers can make certain the accounts are deactivated. To ensure removal of any residual code from a hacker, you need to slick and restore the current HDD in your system, if you have a recovery media with the system back up all your personal files you want to keep and use it. Then make certain you have all the patches and updates applied to your machine and consider D/L or purchasing of anit virus software immediately. Also make all your passwords complex, Use Upper and Lower case, numbers and symbols with atleast 12 characters. I suggest also purchasing a USB HDD to use as your private file storage and discoonect it from your system when not in use. NEVER share passwords with anyone! Good Luck
