IS is possible for some to look through your files and folders if they have your IP address and Router address. My best friends used to live with me and I am suspect that somebody is going on to my network and looking through my computer files and personal information

There is always that possibility, but they would have to be pretty good at cracking to be able to do that. I think it is a remote possibility but I dont know much about the user or the system.

Hi there,
also not knowing the persons capability it is hard to answer your question.
What i would do is use and online service where your firewall is tested to see if all unauthorised incoming traffic and requests are ignored. I use "Shields Up", a free service you can find at www.grc.com.
Providing you have a firewall and it is upto date, you should be ok and if there is a problem, doing the above will let you know.

If you dont have a firewall, Zone Alarm provide a free firewall. Just google it!
Also, the majority of routers have a built in firewall, some basic but it helps.

I hope this helps!
