    I posted yesterday that some ebook rubbish had nicked my site. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/16900

    Thanks to all for the help, especially Eric. Name.com were very helpful, and www.webhistoryofengland.com is now, once again, about England!

    Good -- it's a great website.  Looks like it must be a lot of work -- how did someone kidnap it?

    Good stuff - Glad that it was sorted!

    I did a little research into this lordmmb, or whatever his name is, and he seems to be involved in the pirate and hacking community. You might want to do a sweep for spyware etc, if you haven't already, just in case smile

      Good thought - I use AVG, would that do?

    Thank goodness!!!!! I read that thread yesterday and was shocked that something like that could happen (scary!)

    Perhaps you could write a hub about the steps you took to get back your site. Unfortunately, I bet this will start happening more frequently so I bet folks will be searching for that information.

    No idea about AVG - maybe Eric, Earnest or Misha might be able to help with that one.

    I use a programme called Advanced WindowsCare V2 Personal, available for free from download.com. It seems to pick up most of the crap and has good reviews.

    Not a techie, so I am at the limits of my knowledge, but remember to create a restore point before running it - I have never had a problem, but just in case......smile

    I'm glad you got it back. It was scary. I checked my wordpress blog right after you posted because I hadn't been on it for about a month. You'd think the hosting company could avoid such things from happening.
