    In the hallway - it's on cuz!
    WTF?! I stepped away from my PC for 10 minutes and came back to find that I had been logged out of GT and every other board I am on. On top of that, once I logged on, it showed that I have never viewed any of the messages. That is the case on every board, no matter what software they use.

    Ideas? How do I prevent a reoccurrence?

    Maybe something in your PC got an automatic update,but unlikeley that would log out everything without asking.

    You can scanner for spyware

    This one for Windows 2000 and XP

    If you are using Windows 98 or ME try Adaware

    Can clean up some things with Ccleaner with any version of Windows

    Check your uptime. Are you sure your computer didn't just restart without you knowing it (bad power, scheduled reboot, etc...)?
