Reformat your machine from scratch, don't touch warezinstall a linux distro, use an encrypted wallet and make sure you understand RPC settings!

Now should be better.

No. Of course not. But it would for sure treat his warez addiction, if he has one Wink I didn't strike the part where it says he must understand RPC settings, did I?
And his RPC wansn't open per se. It had a username and password, alebeit a weak one. Also he didn't say if the RPC port was forwarded in the router, which it might not be.
I suggested that it could be the problem, but there is no evidence. More inclined to think it's malware for the time being. My whole point on asking about RPC was to try and save the dude some time on a OS reinstall that might not be needed if RPC proved to be the problem.

I don't use any warez.  The pirate name is just from the fact that I wear an eyepatch.  I am not too well versed in how RPC works but I am finding out.  I tend to think the problem was some of the malware that I found.  I have deleted my guiminer and bitcoin software and have not downloaded any replacements.  I have not had any other problems and everything keeps checking out clean.  I may wait until I get my Bit Force Singles to start up again.  I think I will use the Armory wallet and make sure everything has new and good passwords.  I think that if some kind of keylogger was involved that didn't show up on any of my anti-virus or anti-spyware apps that something would have happened by now to my other accounts instead of just my bitcoin wallet.

As long as I wake up breathing it's all a bonus.  Sometimes not much of a bonus but still a bonus.

Here's an important question:
Have you gave any other sites your private keys?
I had the same issue with 5BTC once, and I was worried for over an hour til I realized I gave mtgox my privatekey for the address they were received at...
In the end, all my BTC was simply sweeped into my mtgox account. So yeah, if you can check if you gave any of your private keys to sites like blockchain.info wallet or mtgox, you might find that's where your BTC went.

Mt. Gox is the only place I have ever sent any bitcoins.  All they ever got was my sending address.  I used different sending addresses.  I did check there but the coins didn't go there.  Organofcorti has been tracking them and apparantly they are part of a larger scheme.  I think I just got some malware and that is what did the damage.  I found a couple of Trojans right after this happened.  Since I deleted them everything is checking out clean.  I use several anti-virus and anti-spyware apps to check my system and it looks like the malware slipped in and did its ripoff in between times when I checked my system.

Possibly.  The more secure route is not to use your host for ANYTHING except hosting virtual machines.  Then have a virtual machine for day to day activities.  If that virtual machine gets infected it can't compromise the host or any other virtual machines (like the one used for Bitcoin & fiat banking).
