  1. Random Login Account


    Hi, I was logged into my computer. After some inactivity it fell asleep like it normally does but when I went to login my login name had changed to "John Monaco" a random name that I have no association with. My password, facial recognition, and pin did not work. My original login name disappeared. I was able to hit "forgot my password" and reset via e-mail. My concern is that I have been hacked. Is this some sort of glitch in the system or do I have a virus?

    :)
