More than likely the hacker attached himself to your web browser or another windows program. This happened to me and he played background music and advertisements on my PC. What I did to get rid of this nuisance I ended up reloading Windows XP. The Windows installation will give you two options one to repair and the other to reinstall a new copy. Repairing will not fix it a totally new copy will need to be installed. This may also fix your flashing green light if a virus is causing it. After reinstalling I switched my web browser to mozilla firefox. Rumor has it that Windows Internet Explorer has been compromised.

I would use a good anti virus/malware utility like Norton Antivirus to protect your data.

What is hacking?


Computer hackers are unauthorized users who break into computer systems in order to steal, change or destroy information, often by installing dangerous malware without your knowledge or consent.

Hi.

If you changed already the password, then it is unlikely an hacker. When the account is hacked, the hacker discovers your password, and use a regular login that can be performed by a person or by a software.
If the password gets changed, the hacker will loose access, at least for a while.
If you keep getting the problem after changing the password, then it may be a virus.

How do you remove or uninstall Firefox when a hacker is using the browser to get to your computer? Please he won't let me uninstall it from the add/remove programs list, it's making my comp go slowly


Disconnect your Internet connection first. If you're using wireless, turn off your wireless connection. If you're using wired, disconnect the wire first. If your computer is not connected to the Internet, no hacker can access it.

Anti-hacking code


Hi noxiney,
Most hackers gain access to others computer through open ports, this way a hacker can't be detected by any antivirus or firewall software. While the hacker is undercover inside your computer theres almost nothing you can do, because you think theres no problem with your PC. Also consider that hackers are experts when covering their tracks, this would make difficult to know from where this intruder comes.
The anti-hacking code would have to track the hackers Ip address and then hack the hacker's PC and trigger the shutdown routine. Let's say that the anti-hacking code can track the hacker's real Ip (which is very difficult considering that the hacker is covering his tracks and showing fake Ip), when the code reaches the hacker's PC it has to get inside and order the operating system to shut down (in less words, hack the hacker).
This is a very difficult thing to make and demands high knowledge not only of the TCP and UDP protocol but knowledge of the other's computer.
Concluding, it is possible to program many softwares that one can use to gather information about the intruder's PC and manage a way to shut down the hacker's PC before he/she shuts down yours. It does not exists a code which automatically shuts down a hacker's PC.

Presario 2200 CPU fan appears to be dodgy


Not really, since the fan is controlled ny a thermal sensor on the Motherboard. You may want to start by having the fan and heatsink assembly replaced.
