Software/Hardware used:
on control panel my e-mail from google shows under Network. so I actually set up 2 free e-mail addresses, but I want to cancel google's and keep hotmail.

    Is it possible, please be more specific. As you mentioned network computer, is it an office environment. Is this a mix OS environment. Please come back with more details.

    It sounds like you might need to remove any malware off your system, change your Google and/or Hotmail password, and start over.

    Check your system for malware and /or viruses. Also it a good idea not to use the same password or email. If they hacked your old one and you have the same e-mail (minus the domain) and used the same password, then it's a piece of cake to hack your new one.

    More over, you can try with MWAV (a free/ instant virus scanner tool) that can help you to detect viruses.
