No folks, I haven't gone into the business of flogging Viagra. Someone has hijacked my email account. My apologies for any inconvenience it has caused.

Change your password, if you can, and that should take care of the spammer and you should be able to have your e-mail back again -- and be sure you choose a very difficult to hack password.
I've had that happen to me and to my kids, so I know how frustrating and irritating it is.

Ya I had the same thing happen to me as well, and I don't know what to do about it...Plus I don't know what Texasbanjo means by change your password, where and which one????

Good luck sorting this problem out, Jim.
Zeke, my guess is that you would change the password you use to log on BHO. You might also, just to be on the safe side, change the password to whatever you are using for the email account that was hijacked.

I changed my email password at Texasbanjo's suggestion. I didn't think it was necessary to change my BHO password, since the spam didn't originate here. I posted here because I noticed that some of my BHO friends had received spam from my email account.

Zeke, change your password on your e-mail account -- once it's changed, the hackers can't get into your e-mail anymore. As Jim said, you don't need to change your Hangout pasword -- that has nothing to do with your e-mail address or password.
Jim, I hope it works for you, it did for me.l
