    I went into my Hotmail account earlier and every single thing I had in there was deleted/gone....... everything! Even my contacts! I have had the account for 8 years and never had a problem like that.

    After I wrote MS customer service, I went back to check and keep getting the "Account Unavailable" page.


    Anyone else?

    i checked two hotmail accounts and both are fine.

    hate to break this to you, but i hope that no one got a hold of your password. if this is the case, you may want to check your comp for a keylogger or something.

    bummer :(

    i hope the best for you, i don't know what would happen to me if something like this happened....

    but, maybe it's just a glitch in the system :)

    Know any good shareware sites for something to hunt down a spy program? I am running MacOSX, so I usually do not have to deal with virus and spy type junk......

    It is not my main account and I did not keep any important financial info in there, so we shall see!

    Thanks

    this is the best....BUT...... i don't know if it is for Mac:

    www.snapfiles.com

    BTW, i'm not that familiar with mac (wrongrobot would be the pro here), but on PC, when you hit ctrl+alt+delete, a window comes up and you are able to see what programs are running in the background (for the most part). i do this then go to this site to see if maybe any nasty ass stuff mad it to my PC:

    have you not checked it for awhile?

    they send me messages everyonce in a while if i don't use it for 20days or so saying they will shut down an inactive account.

    bummer, either way
