Change your passwords if you are worried; I really don't think you have anything to be concerned about.

How it got on is anyone's guess - there is no way of being sure about the origin of such software.

Firstly Karmgord what antispyware found the problem ?

Secondly,think it would be a good idea to change the password...just in case !!

Has your daughter received any files from her Msn contacts ? if so,a file could be infected with spyware/malware etc.
