Tried opening my hotmail and gmail accounts. Got error page with above message. My friend's computer was hacked a few days ago (received email from her yesterday). Prior to receiving her email, opened two that I received from her although I did not open links that were attacked. Could my computer also have been hacked???? Tried changing my password per instructions but kept getting back to error page.

I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found HERE. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

This can also be caused by an incorrect date and time setting on your computer.

You are correct and maybe that should be the first course of action.
What does the date and time show on the little clock on the bottom right of your Windows Desktop?
