I played World of Warcraft and was hacked about 6 months ago. I had no security programs on my computer then, and I haven't touched the infected computer since.

Now I'm resolving to try to get it fixed instead of doing a wipe of the whole computer. I installed Online Armor, NoScript, and Spybot S & D, I've also run a HijackThis scan and saved a logfile. I haven't logged into my email yet, for fear the hacker will hit me again. But I have uninstalled World of Warcraft, done a Spybot S and D scan (8 problems removed, most were ad programs), and now exclusively use Mozilla Firefox when surfing the net.

I am not certain the computer has a keylogger/hacker on it anymore, but I fear getting my email hacked yet again. What should I do next to verify I am still infected, or that the keylogger no longer can harm me?
