Two of my emails where hacked. I kept getting text messages on my phone yesterday morning that my yahoo password changed so I changed it to a different one. This happened like 3 or so times then it stopped. I took off my old email that I no longer use and everything was working fine. This morning the same thing happened but I could not get back to change my yahoo address and now my hotmail is also messed up. Yahoo said try back in 24 hours. I made a new email and went to most of my sites and changed the address to prevent those sites from being hacked also. Should I do anything more? Can I tell if it is someone who has something against me? Could my whole computer be hacked? I am so confused. Any help would be awesome!

You might you have a keylogger. Could be a lot of things though.
I ran that, I ran microsoft security, ccleaner and defrag. I am so lost.

I don't want to cause you panic, if you ever had financial companies (banks, etc) linked to those accounts, you should log in to them (the financial companies) and change your passwords and email address accounts in your personal profile immediately.

It really just depends on what information that was contained in the compromised email accounts. If it was just all personal talk, no need to worry. If you linked financial companies to those email addresses, then you should take more action.

If you think you may be at risk of ID theft, I can post some recommendations (I have gone through something similar recently).

Stating the obvious, but change your passwords as well.

And then do what I do - Shut down your computer and hope everything magically goes back to normal.

Take it back.
The "good luck" was more like a "good bye"

I am so frustrated and confused. Why. What. Lost. I do not think I am going to trust it at all.

Nope. I do think it was someone who knows me quite possibly an ex. I sent yahoo a message about it but no response. I did try the password that was emailed to me from the old account and it did not work. Someone really wanted to mess with my head and it did work.

So now I have a phone number and an email address of the person who has the old email address. This is getting crazy.

Nope. I got text messages from yahoo about changes in my old email and it sent me a number and the email account when the stuff on my old account was changed.
