I am not sure if this is the correct section to post this or not but lately I have been noticing that someone has been reading my mail and stuff like that. I changed my passwords and it was still happening. I ran some antispyware and malware programs like avg, and spyware doctor and cleaned up some infections but the problem was still occurring. Someone in my family or even my girlfriend must have installed a key logger or activity monitoring software. I hate dishonesty and invasiveness and want to get rid of this. I am almost positive that this has to be whats happening. I could password protect my computer but that's not going to help much because I cant deny them my password if they ask me. I figured if I have a method to prevent any spyware from being installed on my computer, then all i have to do is perform a full system recovery and then just prevent anything bad from being installed. How can I do this? What is the answer to this problem? I would really appreciate the help, thanks

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
