    i was playing last night when my toon was running around by himself i lost complete control then i gained control after log out and back in. then a few minutes later the video got all screwy and the system freezes up so i hit the reset and after reboot my second video card was disabled. i shut down the restarted now is ok.

    I doubt you were "hacked". Most likely a driver glitch, system error, etc. Check the error log.

    i checked the aether harddrive where i have my games installed for fragmentation and it was realy fragmented so i defrag it and the game played better so it was possible that that was the problem.

    like erocker said, prob just a driver glitch.. then plus defrag might help.

    Most online games dont allow 2 instance of a game to be run at ANYTIME. same thing applies when logging in to most online accounts If youre logged in on to MSN with one computer, and logon to MSN with the second computer - messenger will automatically log off the first one.

    If he was trying to gain control of your account. you most likely would have been kicked as 'youre logging in from a different location'

    From my observations, Most hackings usually take place when the player isnt online, logged in or left their pc idle and connected to the internet for hours and hours.
