My friends account was hacked the other day and we're looking for help and guidance please.

She was using her messenger to whom she thought was a family member across the globe. Next thing it turns out to be some weirdo and she cant shut down the window except by performing a hard shutdown on the computer!

Has anyone else experienced this and what was your experience?
