Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

How strong is you password? good rule of thumb is mix the letters using upper and lower case and use numbers.
Nothing found in a dictionary, this make it tougher for bots to break the password.. If you are and she is still finding them out I suspect a keylogger in running on your system.

    You should install some good anti-spyware and perform a full scan on your machine. Also, a firewall with the ability to block outgoing connections could help, as even if you had a keylogger running it wouldn't be allowed to send collected information to the web. But, as mentioned above, you should use strong passwords, and your password should not be related to you, your family, your pets, etc (birthdates, pet names and similars are too easy to guess).
