Why do you think someone in Slough has hacked into your computer?

If you had your passwords hacked, then you most likely wouldn't be able to login again. But you were able to login, weren't you?

Who is your ISP by the way? G

Virgin media

I think you need to have a close look at your Facebook security settings. I cannot see how Facebook can know about Slough unless someone with that location has commented or looked at your wall.

Not a scam to get you to enter your password on some fake link is it ?

Give your PC a full scam with MalWareBytes and see if you do indeed have some nasties on it.

Then change your FB password.

Someone on here last year complaing about Virginmedia as there was someone else out there with the same E-mail address and password as himself.
He wanted to know how it could happen.
Not sure what the outcome was though.
