Those mysql errors are general mysql errors, I get them sometimes when the site is really busy.

Are you sure its not something caused by other activity on other sites? Have you downloaded anything recently that might be suspicious? This sounds more like a virus.

I need some more information.

Yea, I agree with John. The mysql errors are normal, but the flashing hack thing is probably from something else.

When was the last time you ran a complete virus scan?

I am pretty careful too, and have a firewall and whatnot, and recently had some viruses get past them. However my computer didn't catch them until I did a full system scan (quick scan didn't work).

I doubt whatever it was that happened with the whole hacking thing was related to this site though.

I feel your pain. Files being erased by viruses suck, but I've never seen a "You Are Hacked" screen. As long as this person doesn't have access to your computer you're safe, right? There's no way for your files to be harmed via AG, is there?

Either way, keep your PC on for a while.

Yeah, I had some trouble with hackers a while ago. I kept receiving emails from hackers through my own email account XD Since then I have used a bugmenot disposable account to register on sites and I have bought a mac. I have never been hacked or gotten a virus since

I have a Mac as well. Awesome.

BTW Switch, do you have access to the OS install disk(s) just in case something you have gets deleted?

OS stands for operating system.

It could possibly just be some sort of joke or SPAM. Like some lame popup someone made to freak people out. Have you tried Googling it?
