hi everybody,
i love your site!! i have been having an issue on my computer atm. i recently got a message saying to change my pw as it was suspected that my yahoo email had been broken into. i do play WOW but the email address that i use is only used for my World of Warcraft acct. I never use it for anything else. I am not very involved in chatting. It actually has taken me almost 3 yrs to get 2 characters to lv 85 because I have practically done the entire game solo. Once my warcraft acct. was hacked and i got a similar email mssg (2 ys ago) but it was my fault. I allowed someone access. Now I trust nobody. Both of my pc,s have issues now. I am currently awaiting your help to remove a bad rootkit on this pc and im unsure about my other pc which is in the shop for a new power supply. Im not that literate when it comes to pc,s since im self taught, but how did this happen? what should i do? what can i do? thanx for looking.:dance::busy:

It could have been a phishing attempt where they were trying to trick you into changing your password at a site that was not really yahoo. Do you still hav ethe original email?

Login onto the yahoo email account, instead of using links from an email, from now on when changing passwords. That guarantees your changing the password in the right location.
