My neighbor had played with Zwinky, and along with her kids. She now says that she think someone is getting her info and stuff. Shes says that when shes on zwinky she sees all the avatars of her friends and relatives. She also says the person who is 'hacking' her has her kids Social Secuirty numbers. Also, she says that they're getting pics from her computer and her unplugged camera...

I think shes been scarred from the movie Eagle Eye.

Any suggestions?

Should I 'fix' her comp? If so, what programs would I need downloaded to be put on a flash drive (Also, I need a flash disinfecter then).


Thx

Here's a couple of good tools you can put on a flash drive:

While I would never install anything that adds the MyWeb Searchbar, I don't think Zwinky would allow anyone total access to someone else's computer, unless she was persuaded to download infected files.
