    The first thing you should do is password prtoect your Admin and Mod directories:

    The HTAccess Authentication Tutorial

    Next, go into phpMyAdmin and reset your password using this query:

    UPDATE user SET password = MD5('mypassword') WHERE userid = #;

    Obviously replacing mypassword and # with the correct values. Then find any other illegal admins in the databse (user table, group 6) and changed their groupid to 2 for the time being.

    This will give you back control of your forums.

            Thank you,
            make sure you use a different password for the .htaccess than you do for your main admin password. Since IE saves your .htaccess password, try using a long combination of letters and numbers like "h5NnBbd6G3b2dH09d" or something, and don't retype the password, just have IE save it (that will prevent keyloggers from getting it).
