I have recentley split from a friend, and she....isnt happy. she knows ppl in Turkey who hack computers. She has my msn(which I have blocked and deleted) and probably my IP address.

Is there any way she can get them to hack my computer after i block and delete her on msn?

does she no your ip address off by heart? or have it writen down.?

  silverdragon4 22:26 07 Mar 2008

more than likely yes

Your IP address changes every time you connect to the internet, so it will do her no good.

does it? i thought some stayed the same and others changed

depends if it is static or dynamic

Unless you specifically bought a static IP Address from your ISP, it will be a dynamic IP Address that you have. i.e. it changes everytime you connect.

i take it static is same IP each time and Dynamic changes. Is there a way to scramble my IP? or will an ISP change it to Dynamic?

how do i know if it changes?

Go to start>run type cmd

When it appears type IPCONFIG

That'll tell you your IP address.

....don't be so paranoid, she's just trying to freak you out.

Go here click here and take note of your IP address. Then disconnect from the internet for a minute or so, then reconnect and go back to that site and you should see that you have a new IP Address.
