Lenovo E530 laptop Win 8.1 64 bit.. by and large trouble free operations, but in the past two weeks , some unusual stuff happening , not sure if it has to do with the latest monthly updates installed on 22 July..
Suddenly a chat site I have a paid account with wouldn't let me log in with correct password , have visited help desk , PW was reset, profile reset, new PW made, email confirmation every time & program was reinstalled several times, but still can't log on > loging problems, check spelling < etc..
Weird thing that I can log on with a free unpaid nickname ( diff passwords) .. no issues,
also I can log on using the paid nickname on a different computer , but not on this laptop .
Totally weird.. and yes I am always using the correct PW , copy & paste , but tried typing it , makes no difference.
There are no log in problems anywhere else , email etc.. all works fine.
Was I hacked ? Or the chat program was interfered with , if that was the case , probably couldn't log in at all .
Is it possible to block one Nickname in a program/computer ?
Another annoying issue, suddenly I have MSN homepage popping up @ startup, but doesn't happen all the time , so weird , default browser Firefox ( always up to date ) how & where does MSN homepage come from , and how do I stop it !!?
For the record I have all my software/programs up to date and scan almost every day using different scans . all come up clean.
If anyone has an explanation/solution I'd love to hear it... please !!!
