Hi, I am new. Hello! Well, I am just too embarassed to say what I did, but let's say that I let some stranger take control of my computer thinking they were going to help me with my security system of all things..and well I was scammed and hotmail hacked. After that my hotmail account inbox got loaded and all my friends on my list from the hotmail account got strange messages as well.

SO I deleted the hotmail account, changed every password of everything I could think of. Now I am worried that that was not enough. The reason I am worried is not my trendmicro security keeps telling me that my credit card number is being blocked (that is good of course) but why is this data trying to go out in the first place?!!!!! I do not store my credit card number on my computer though it is stored at various sites like Paypal and so forth. I did a hijackthis log, but I cannot tell anything by it. Am I in trouble or okay?

Thank you, K

What is the exact message Trend is showing you?

Have you scanned your computer with any antivirus programs?
