While I am on a game site, the game site name was on the left side of the tab and then the tab turned from blue to green and a person's name appeared next to the game name on the tab. What is going on here?

Also, after downloading a page, a search string looking bunch of words keeps on , its not items remaining or anything like that, after the page has downloaded it looks like it is searching. What is up with that?

tiny, you might want to share some information such as what site it is you were referring to and what OS + browser + version you are using just in case the people who want to help you didn't have a crystal ball handy.

No one here will have any clue at all whats going on, as a post just thrown out here with the provided info very few if any people will have any idea what your talking about. I would suggest the support pages for the game site in question.

I am so sorry. The site is Mindjolt Games that is on my Facebook page (linked from Mindjolt?) I have Internet Explorer 8 browser and I am stupid and I don't know what OS means. When I click on the mindjolt game which is three pyramid solitare, down in the left hand corner where is says "Done", it first says "Done" and then a string of words or letters keeps running where it did have "Done".

The deal is that someone came to my house, just had to get on my computer, then put disc in it and kept jacking around and then got the disc, put it in their purse and left. So, Im just wondering what the hell.

Ok that right there is no good. You can't allow just someone to do what they did.

Yeah, that is no joke. Today, I log in to my facebook and this persons friend page shows up under my login information. So, I wrote them a message, a nice one...but ...it is just so much like voyeurism...it creeps me out. I think that is internet crime, don't you?

Not at all, it's you being very lax in your computer security. What you should be thinking about is the other stuff that was done that you don't know about.

There was no hacking, someone was in your house, and you let them use your computer, I fail to see where any hacking was involved. The fault does pretty much lie with you, simply password protecting your account would prevent others from using it without your permission.
