Dear Mr. Hardon:

I went ahead and deleted the virus as you said but was not able to
send you e-mail to tell you I did that because my system's e-mail 
stopped working right about that time.

My browser did work so I used it to set up an account on Hotmail
and entered all of my personal information into my new Passport

My credit card has stopped working due to some funny charges and my 
computer is calling the Internet at all hours. This began after I 
read an incoming message from Hotmail that popped up a box saying 
that my system was "0wned by Hackerz, greetz to Cyberd00d and 
ChipCh1ck." Are you sure that this is safer?
