    This is pretty weird, I've been online most of the day, and yesterday as well as todaay I've noticed that periodically when I'm typing in a familiar address such as blackhat world etc autocomplete doesn't spell out the rest of the site as it normally does (btw I'm using chrome) Now , I haven't switched auto complete off, what's adding to the weirdness is the fact that, a short while after I've been on say for instance BHW, and I navigate away, then navigate back to BHW after a short time, the browser completes the address like normal. Then... an hour or so later, it stops autocompleting addresses, it's making me think somebody is somehow using my computer and deleting forms and passwords to cover there traces or whatever.

    Any ideas you big brained motherlovers?

    What would that do? If I have been hacked would it fuck the hacker over, or would it simply stop my browser acting erraticlaly?

    Have you set it to automatically clear history every time you close Chrome?

    No I usually browse incognito so I don't have to , but it still normaly saves my passwords/forms/autofill browser info etc. It's actually getting quite weird now, I checked one of my Gmail accounts an hour ago and I got a warning from them saying someone from the Czech republic has tried to access my account?! Getting kinda paranoid now actually. Good job I deleted all dat kiddy pr0n! (I Jest)

    You may try downloading free trial of some well known antivirus or at least scan your system with Spybot S&D. This might be some kind of a worm. In the meantime you can work on saving your gmail account by adding phone verification number if you haven't done that already, if that is not enough for you, you may try using 2nd step verification method for google accounts. It will always send you a verification code to your cell phone once the account is accessed from unfamiliar IP address. I'm not 100% certain if it's available for everybody, but you may look for that option in account settings.

    Well , I have long experience in hacking :). And this has nothing to do with hacking. Your software is lagging for some reason. In the worst case it would be a virus and there is a huge difference between being hacked or there is a virus on your computer.

    Clear Your Cache , Uninstall and Re-Install your Browser and all things like that.
    And I hope you have good antivirus on you pc after all :)

    naah.. Google Chrome has been vulnerable from hackers that is why they cannot climb their ratings at the top (#1), yes i observed that because one of my personal gmail account for my paypal account has been hacked using Google Chrome browser.. lucky me because the hacker did not scan my personal details in my gmail account! They only use my gmail for sending spams, google alert me that my account has been compromised and they ask me to change my password..

    After that, i quickly removed google chrome in my Pc and use firefox! Be careful with Google Chrome browser mate!
