A strange thing just happened and I am wondering was I hacked?
I was downloading a couple of files from "File Planet" when both downloads stopped.. I tried to browse a couple of pages at the fileplanet site and couldnt connect..so i tried to start a download in "Morpheus" and could not connect..all the while the indicator for the bytes sent on the taskbar was sending.. I sat and watched with nothing d/loading or sending and still I seemed to be sending info out....so I ask was it a glitch or was some one accessing my computer?
The only way i stopped it was to disconnect from the net then reconnect..every thing seemed fine after that..

Hi Rat_Attack,Could be some spyware calling home.I know File Planet has some spyware on it but am not sure which ones they use.Might be a good idea to check for spyware.Download Ad-aware 5.6,run it and see what it finds.

Also go to your startup in msconfig,and see if you anything in there.If your not sure you can post your startup back here,and we can see if you have spyware.
