Hrm, so they got caught by phishing using a fake Forgot Password form, and they send the exact same password reset request in their break-in acknowledgement? D'oh! It could well be another phishing attempt :-)

Can anyone tell me why a computer that is 10 times faster with 4 times the memory is so much slower at responding to simple inputs? There's a perceptible lag when just single clicking a desktop icon to highlight it.

What antivirus do you run on each machine? Every file in a folder is scanned before it is displayed, that may explain a thing or two.. By the way in this regard Avira is decent at not slowing down too much things.
