Two of my friends got their accounts hijacked too but after a few days (two, three days) they got them back. It was a link that was on a group event, It lead them to the steam community page and it said there was a promotion going on and it was offering a game to whoever logged in. I had to help them recover the account because they didn't know how and were too afraid to do something wrong. Hope you get your account ASAP. Are you the guy who has the name with strange characters? Because I think I've seen you on the servers today.

You should try and scan the file with site below:

http://virusscan.jotti.org/en

It uses multiple uptodate scanengines to scan files u send. And after you know what it s then u can google it for removal methods.

Some good antispyware/malware progs:

SpyBot S&D
AdAware

AVG

Not free but u can scan with it but if u want remove something / disinfect u have to buy it (Good Prog Btw):

Spyware Doctor

Sounds bad. i won't even open a rar lol to see the exe you scan the rar! before hand. I won't even click some links players send me.

Rar files i use http://malwarebytes.org/

I have the full version  Wink but the free version will be better than nothing.

Maybe dazzed got hacked to if not he sent it simple or the attacker new you all and used his name to make you think it was someone else you have on your friends.

Hope yah get it sorted fast. Updated your post fixed the spellings and amended the title.

My Account was hijacked once. I went away on hol and came back to find i cudnt log in. After reaserch it became apparent that somebody had hacked in. Lets just say steam were less than helpful in getting it back for me even thougjh i even sudmitted the product keys for game i owned. Eventually i got an account back but it wasnt my old one :S
