I was recently advised by my web based email client that my username and password had been stolen and were being used for spamming. From the logs it appeared that the spamming came from Nigeria. They stated it was probably a key logger. I have not accessed my email account on a public terminal for over a year.
My email client password has been changed.
My computer has definitely slowed down and I am having a lot of problems with Firfox 3.0.11. I am getting a lot of “Address Not Found” and “ Firefox cannot find the server at….URL…..Try Again” Sometimes the “Try Again” works and sometimes it doesn’t.
Would anti-key logger software help me in this situation bearing in mind that I cannot tell if my computer is clean or not. Have I got problems using payment processors such as Clickbank and PayPal?
I assume a reinstall of my OS would be of no use as the key logger would already have my computer identity.
Anyone got any ideas please?
