Hi Everyone,
How is everyone doing? I am finally back in my account after being locked out again.
We(me and mom) have some questions to now ask after what just happened.

When I tried resetting my password the other day, the email went to her account. We are now wondering if somehow the reason for the password, and all the other account information is being changed due to us sharing the same network?
Here is how things are setup ever since switching from Earthlink Dialup Internet to Bellsouth DSL. We now have a router and a modem and they are both hooked to my computer and wired out to my mom's computer. So, yes, my computer does have her information typed into it.
We even notice so many things the computers seem to remember automatically. Like whenever you go to fill out a form. You don't have to type certain things, like your address, and other things for example.
This is not the only account I have had messed up. So, after what just happened with the email getting sent to her account, is now making us wonder, maybe this really isn't spyware or something else causing my stuff to get changed.
We are also logged onto the internet all the time too since switching to DSL. Like if you press ctrl, alt, delete, it shows all the people logged into the network. Her name is of course in there, and also she is the one who purchased the Internet. So, the whole internet is under her name and all, but both of us do have separate email accounts.
