Default Hacked!

I got hacked and I'm afraid they might come back.
I'm using an NVidia firewall and Sygate personal fire wall Pro.
My password is now a combination of numbers letters and symbols
What should I do?

I think it was 1337Haxor that was spamming...

ADvid, my advise to you is that if you are in doubt then you should go back to square one and start again regards your security...
though firewalls and virus scanner should be enough to stop you getting hacked really...
