Hello guys.. So, the thing is that i keep reseting my hotmail and facebook password cause it keeps telling me almost day by day that the password i type is wrong.. So i reset it.. I have done that about 10-15 times these days.
Does this mean my hotmail and facebook account are being hacked? or do i have somekind of virus..?
Btw i have that problem only in these two sites..
Also the day that this started in my facebook account in the application "Texas hold'em poker" someone took all my chips, about 2 mil.. And also during these days someone posted with my facebook account a comment in a friend's wall and he asked her what's her adress and postal code..
So i believe this all started with facebook..
The thing is how do they keep finding the new passwords?
It's a huge problem for me mostly for my hotmail account cause i own it for many many years.. :(
Anybody know what am i supposed to do?
I'll try anything so that i won't lose my mail account at least..

this is very weird... there could be many things doing this... i'm thinking that there could be a virus, and it's a typing tracker.....

otherwise i have NO idea what could be going on.....

  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to

  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad.

Good Luck,
