A friends PC takes an absolute age to boot up, and everything about it is much much slower than it used to be. However the main problem is when entering any password on sites - that have always worked before - it now rejects them. The exception to this is his Gmail account which always 'auto-loads' when clicking from Bookmarks yet when logging in from another computer the password is again rejected. Is this a sign of hacking?
