My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use Office 2007.  One of my friends emailed me to say that my computer has been hacked and asked me to reformat the system etc.  As I am not that IT techky, it must be thru my IP address.  If my assumption is correct, how and what preventions can I take to resolve this for any hackers to hack into my pc again.  Thank u.
