Yes I have changed my password. It still happened. And I haven't told anyone my password. But I no longer have the IP address to the computer...

The account is my e-mail account. Personally I don't want anyone reading those. My computer is coming through a wireless router that is suppose to have a firewall though. I just don't understand how they can get into my account without changing my password.

well first why dont you check your firewall and make sure its on its highest setting, then after if that doesnt work, we might be able to set up a PoP account so u can get a new email address but all your old mail from the old address will come to the new one <_<
