I have used steam for years, in fact started when it first came out and never had an issue of spam or being "hacked" through my steam account. Suggest you go ahead and start in the malware forum and run through all that. Then we can dicuss best ways to get your steam account back as its no good for you to fix that with a good possiblity of malware on your machine yet. But the best way to get your steam account back is via steam support. Also please clean up your language this is a family friendly forum and thats unnecessary in resolving your issue.

the time for my post. I appreciate that.

I went and ran

deleted em just fine to--Disabled my System restore

Rebooted and im pretty certain pcs clean.

I was jonesin' to play Day of Defeat, so i went and
bought a Day of Defeat license for $ 4.95. my Steam
runs 95% quicker now so im just going to go like this until
steam sends me back/responds to my Support ticket.

You could wait for steam support to get back to you.
Alternatively, if the person who hacked your account hasn't changed your email linked to the account, you could retrieve it with the 'lost password' link, and then change it to something different.
