I advise you to change two important points:
1.Change your id by new difficult and strange one.
2.Change your security question that you entered when you create your account by new and difficult one.

and be sure that the person who hacked yor email he is know you and he is knowing one of these security tools or both :)

you may try out those suggestions given by other users here but am afraid that won't help a lot. changing passwords and security settings doesnt work at all because you are already been link to his computer and everytime you log in using the same PC some data will be pass to the hacker and notify him via offline message the new password you are using including ur OS, Ip Add, REgistry number and so on. if you have an updated Norton Anti-virus this could have been blocked since the start of stealing. i am pretty sure that u have chatted with the hacker you just don't remember who the person is. there are two basic rules to be followed;
first, never accept files esp. jpeg file with "exe" at the end with those people you don't know. Second, always update ur anti virus.
i must tell you password stealing using Magic Password v1.5 doesnt work without ur permission. this only happens when you accepts the file sent.
so what do you have to do?
SIMPLY RUN NORTON ANTI-VIRUS (Updated) and this will track down its location and just delete it. if this doesnt help send me a message and i will tell you where you can find Magic Password Remover. i can't post it here for those are restricted sites and i might get banned..heheh
