My Myspace, Facebook, and email accounts are all hacked. The passwords are all changed and I cant recover them because my email is hacked as well. OMG I really dont know what to do now. Ive noticed svchost.exe taking up 99% CPU usage recently and wonder if this has something to do with it. Im really facking scared. I run scans with Avira and MBAM regularly and so far have come up clean.

Please download RootRepeal Rootkit Detector and save it to your Desktop.

* Close all programs and temporarily disable your anti-virus, Firewall and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan.
* Click this link to see a list of such programs and how to disable them.
* Create a new folder on your hard drive called RootRepeal (C:\RootRepeal) and extract (unzip) RootRepeal.zip. (click here if you're not sure how to do this. Vista users refer to this link.)
* Open the folder and double-click on RootRepeal.exe to launch it. If using Vista, right-click and Run as Administrator...
* Click on the Files tab, then click the Scan button.
* In the Select Drives, dialog Please select drives to scan: select all drives showing, then click OK.
* When the scan has completed, a list of files will be generated in the RootRepeal window.
* Click on the Save Report button and save it as rootrepeal.txt to your desktop or the same location where you ran the tool from.
* Open rootrepeal.txt in Notepad and copy/paste its contents in your next reply.
* Exit RootRepeal and be sure to re-enable your anti-virus, Firewall and any other security programs you had disabled.

Note: If RootRepeal cannot complete a scan and results in a crash report, try repeating the scan in "Safe Mode".
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Hmm, just got this fixed by the wonderful google password reset system :thumbsup: I checked what the passwords were all changed to, and it was "infidel12". This is very odd because I had been in Iran about 3 or 4 weeks ago and had signed into all of those sites while over there. My home PC is most likely clean. I just thought that this was REALLY odd.
