I wish I would have screen shot the problem but I encountered something weird lately.

My browser would sometimes be "glitchy" and lot of the contents would be "blacked" out (usually after a LONG time like a week or two with the same browser tabs opened), and only reveal what's behind it when I hover my mouse over the black out area.

And something really triggered my suspicion is that earlier that happened to me again, and when I tried to copy and paste a link to my facebook friend on facebook chat, the browser black out lot of contents around the chat window and on the chat window I saw a textfile/website that is in a format of a resume, it wasn't editable it was just weirdly "pasted" as an image on my chat message window (not the input section). It looks like it's on resume format but the contents are more like people talking to each other. something nerdy like "talking to cute woodland creatures at will" and "fighting skills" and "don't forget something something you racist pigs" along those lines.

there's no way those are the contents from the link I was sending out, and I checked all other opened tabs, none of them have that content I was looking at. Nor do I have anything similar stored on my computer (I word checked).


So my question is, am I being hacked? and this is what the hackers are doing on my computer for fun?


How can I be sure I am not being hacked? I had a new hard drive couple months back and the only way if there were hackers hacking me and they are still getting to me would be via my social network/ email or they are targetting me IP address..
 
start with malware bytes scan and then hitman pro scan. to see if it malware. if your using mse anti virus that comes with windows it not as good as avg/avast or bit defender free. also use firefox or crome and a pop up blocker to stop drive by installs. on installing free software read what your installing a lot of 3 party free software is full of spamware now.
