You dont say what contacts?
email. messenger, facebook?
Whatever it is, yes change passwords, scan your pc for virus and malware.
Use malwarebytes (free) in safe mode with your system restore OFF, lots of nasties can hide in system restore.
Boot into safe mode (F8 on bootup)
You can turn system restore off by going to ..
Start / programs / accessories / system tools / system restore.
Turn restore back on after the scan if you wish

No change your password so it can't be done,
I like to use long passwords that are easy to remember and no one will guess, for example..
My log in for my computer is emmiel00h00ismydaughter
Basically i use the zero instead of an O and make a nice sentence that no guesses, another one i use is milkalwaysg0esbad just a thought.. Use things that are important to you just make them long and with numbers

How do I change the caller ID name on 3G phone?


If someone is calling you, the names are whatever phone number matches you contact information in your address book. Just edit it there. If you are calling someone else, it's their address book that determines the caller ID name

Possible problem with secure http connection of messenger


Yahoo Messenger? It is pretty well protected unless someone hacked your user name or password--someone who knows you?

Consider getting a new user name and password--good idea to change that password every once in a while.

You could contact Yahoo but they often provide little help.

If you are using a router and wireless for the unit--make sure its protected with a security setup and change that password also--so no one can get in and see what you are doing.

Either someone hacked the router or your Messenger name and password.

A message will be sent to you via e-mail. So there is when you will get your password back.

Well, if you post the pw and user name online someone will surely hack it. Go to where the login is and use the password reset link they provide. You have two options, get the password sent to your alternate email if you spcified one or you can answer a secret question to reset it yourself. If that does not work contact Yahoo and they will send you a new password. And in future do NOT post usernames or passwords online in a public forum even if you are locked out of an account.

Hacked Id


Yes your email has most likely been hacked. This obviously means someone is reading your mail. Create a new account with a totally different user name (if your user name was leannraven don't make it leannraven2) and send an email to all of your friends to send mail to your new one and to stop sending to the old one. I don't know of any other way to fix this.
