    I had a laptop go belly up due to some sort of virus, I couldn't do anything with it but our estate IT contractor managed to recover everything from it. It did take several hours though. Might be worth getting a second opinion before you give up on them. I had a friend who was a detective and he said that unless a computer is physically, totally destroyed they can generally recover everything from it, that's how they catch paedophiles etc. Glyn.

    It's unlikely your computer was hacked, I would guess that you, or more likely the kids, downloaded something nasty like a Trojan. If you know an IT guru then they will probably be able to do a data recovery for you, otherwise you will have to go to a local IT company to do it. Might be worth doing anyway because if they have installed a key logger etc they will be able to see your passwords.

    It was an email that buggered up my laptop recently, i sorted it by starting up and pressed F8 and started from last known good configuration and then ran my norton which found and rectified the problem, but i aint no expert, i think i just got lucky.
    Cheers

    Go to bleepingcomputer.com, download rkill (get the iexplore.exe version) and combofix. Run these as administrator before running either S&D or Malwarebytes.

    And then ditch Norton. If something got past it, it's not worth the processor time !
