variety of issues stemming from potential backdoor

Recommended Posts

I've never had to make a post on any forum before and usually refer to the self help sections, but what is going on right now is beyond me.

I think it all began when I got Diablo 3, my account got 'hacked' and I lost all my gear. I didn't really care and allowed my blizzard account to become locked due to the security issues. I figured that since I had no interest in playing any game by blizzard anymore, I shouldn't have any problems. (on a side note, a guy from china added me and some other diablo players, none that I know. I suspect this person to be the culprit, though what can I do?) Guild Wars 2 came out, which I purchased and only played in beta. When the game was released I found that my account here had also been compromised. Someone was/is possibly still using my account. I don't really care about that account either, though I find it all very irritating.

Somewhat recently my email started sending out spam emails and I thought maybe I just needed to change my passwords, which I have done, and it seems to have cured that problem.

Now the letter keys on my keyboard aren't working, but only when I'm gaming. It works during all other times, and I read somewhere that there might be a keylogger on my computer (yes I've switched out my keyboards). I've searched and scanned and done everything but nothing is turning up. I haven't had any security breaches to speak of recently but I'm still worried.

Also my task manager doesn't display the running programs in the applications tab, though processes seems to be working fine.

Can someone help me please and save me the work of reformatting my computer?
