    help please
    Ok, i will try my best to describe my problem the best I can.
    I have windows 98. I dont have an antivirus or a firewall, because I didnt think i had anything important that anyone would want. or i figured i could always reformat. Well, I moved into another home and I misplaced ALL my cd's, and I have boxes and boxes yet to go through. I did have that love letter virus, but i ran a scan that someone here recommended, it found it and supposedly got rid of it. Now......I am downloading all my drivers off the net, but next to c drive, it shows the logo of my modem ????I have us robotics, and i cant get to the stuff in my c drive, Now, i know i most also be getting hacked, because i went to get an address that i kept in my documents, and my documents were all missing, when i finally went into my paint shop pro and found some of them...i noticed, that the addresses had mean things wrote in them...Like Jen the Ho, and sally the slutt, stuff like that. So...My question is...What can I do exactly?

    Kimberly, I split your post off from the other thread that you posted in. You'll get better response also in the Security forums, so that's where I've moved you.

    First you should install a firewall to stop the intrusions. Install a permanent anti-virus program then run another virus scan with the latest updates.

    Check this link for tools that you can use. Download spybot and get the updates. Run it by clicking on checknow. If you have more questions post them so someone can help.
