I'm kinda confused and frankly a bit sick to my stomach.

i have been hacked in the past so i'm kinda sceptic about all kinds of stuff right now.
i scanned and cleaned both my computer and my laptop with MBAM and changed my passwords
all was fine untill just an half an hour ago my MSN gave me the popup saying i was signed out because the other messenger i was signed in at did not allow for multiple locations.
as far as i know i am spyware, adware, malware and virus free but i'm getting kinda paranoid here...
i signed back in and it hasn't happened again yet.

am i being hacked or what? i'm confused and paranoid at this stage.

both my PC and Laptop have Windows 7 and as far as i know 7 doesnt have a windows messenger so that is out of the question.

if any more info is needed, ask please. i will be checking back on this post from time to time.

If you're not having further issues, sounds like it might just have been a glitch when logging in and out.

However, to put your mind at ease, you can always get a second opinion by performing an Online Virus Scan:-- F-Secure requires free Java Runtime Environment (JRE) to be installed before scanning for malware.
-- If given the option, choose "Quarantine" or "Cure" instead of Delete.

i am thinking something similar just to the extend that the internet connection went out for a second orso and that that caused it.
MBAM didnt find anything.

That has happened to me more than once. I live in a rural area and our ISP service is poor so I often loose my connection requiring me to resign it on sites that required logons.
