password changes

I was on a chat line and instead of being booted someone send my pc some sort of command that when I happen to log out and disconnect my ISP then l try logining back in it adds numbers and letters to my ISP password and thus not allowing me to log in ; even if I delete the password completely it still will not recognize my original password ; what I've had to do was completely delete my connection and reinstall then I'm O.K. but if I disconnect same thing happens ; my question is how do I find this command and delete it from my pc so it does not affect my password ;thank you appinman46 here in canada stumpped

Since this isn't a Linux issue, I'm moving this thread to the General forum.
