It looks this forum automaticly logs you out if you take too long to
post a message... so I just lost everything I wrote...
well, I`ll write again.
Thanks everybody for the advice, and sorry for the late reply. I was
away this weekend and couldn`t use the Internet.
Big Bone mentioned UAC, and yeah I did have UAC enabled. I also had the
Windows Firewall enabled and set the network as a public network (where
it`s not supposed to share any files at all, I believe). I did have some
folders set as shared for my home network, but even folders that weren`t
shared at all got deleted too. So, I have no idea how somebody hacked
in, if they did.
The possibility of a virus is still there too, but I checked all my
autoruns (programs and services), and I didn`t see anything strange. I
did find that trojan when I did a Norton scan last week, but I don`t
know if that was connected or not. My computers been kinda slow since
the incident, but that could be for a number of reasons. I`ve had the
computer for 1 -1/2 years now, and haven`t reformated once yet, so maybe
it`s time to just start over from scratch.
I`m kinda scared to connect to the internet with that machine now
though, cause I`m afraid there`s some sort of security hole and I`m
gonna get attacked again. Like I said above, there aren`t any mysterious
proccesses running, and everything looks fine, but with has been running
slower since the attack, so I`m a little worried... I think I`ll try
looking into a better firewall like Big Bone and scousa4lyf mentioned,
just to shield myself in the future.
Once again, thanks everyone.
