Hi

I logged in to Windows XP this morning, and then installed a security update
(a hotfix for windows media player 11). I then opened IE7 but noticed my
homepage was set to a different homepage. I went on to ebay.co.uk and the
login said "Hello Andrew2000eagle. Not you? Sign In", which is not me. So I'm
wondering how this has happened, has someone hacked in to my computer and
changed some settings? How can I tell if someone is accessing my computer
without my knowing? Is there any way of knowing?

Cheers
Heywogr
