I am a single parent that was in a bind for money and purchased a used/rebuilt pc from a friend of a friend and thought i got a fantastic deal. Turns out that that friend of a friend is a perverted hacker that is constantly looking through my personal files and websites. I'm no IT person but I do know a little enought to know that he is violating me and invading my privicy.

I've asked him to come over and remove everything (network/remote programs) from the pc but he is to embarrassed to do so and gives me a BS story of i'll come over and do it. HE NEVER DOES !

I need to find out how to wipe him and all his access to my pc because it's getting out of hand. Yesterday my media player was open to video clips that he has on the pc that are xrated. I left the media player playing a cd so I know it's getting out of hand. When i try to access or delete his files I get the following error:

"Cannot delete (xxxxxxxx): Access is denied.
Make sure the disc is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use." along with you cannot delete becuse you do not have administrator priviges.
