    Not properly clear ur Q! Sorry for that, however software tag is FF, guessing is this a proxy, if yes, u have to contact ur system administrator. If it is ur OL/LN then again u have to ask to the person, who takes care all of these.

    What password are you having an issue with, power on, network, or a website? If on a PC, how is the administrator set up. Do you have authority to this sign on? Is this a personal or work computer? As a side note, how do you know you were hacked? What was done that make4s you suspect a hack?.. It may just be a virus or malmare that can be removed.

    All I know is that people on Facebook were asked to send me money in Africa. The problem is that when people hit "REPLY" to my emails, we don't know where it goes. Also on Facebook, I am trying to build up our dog rescue page. I post a message and people comment on it, but the next day it is gone. Also my signature for my emails has been completely changed . Thanks for any help. We are South Texas Animal Adoption Resource and need all the help we can get.

    How are you sending your e-mails? Using Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail or other method?

    Have you reported the issue to Facebook that you think you may have been hacked and people are asking for money?

    When I get a chance I'll check our your Facebook page and try and post a comment and see if it stays. It may bee a setting or share authority issue in Facebook. Their security leaves a lot to be desired IMO.

    I checked out your Facebook page. Had too I'm a dog lover. I went and checked some of the postings and I did see comments. The only thing is you open them by clicking on the little chat bubble at the bottom of a post The number next to the chat bubble tells you the number of comments. It collapses them by default to save space.

    As for the e-mail and signature, I'll try a few things and if I come up with some thing I'll send some screen shots to your e-mail listed on Facebook.
