How are they pulling this hack off? [Closed]

For a while now, I've been the victim of a very sophisticated hack. I was hoping someone on this forum could tell me exactly how they're engineering it.

Somehow I am being feed counterfeit webpages. For example, whoever is behind this doesn't want me posting on social media sites like Facebook. I can try to comment on someone's post, and it appears in my browser that I have, but in reality I haven't. In my latest attempt, I tried posting something. Every time I return to that person's page and look at my comment, nothing has changed. I used a different computer on a different network, and dozens of comments appear after mine. The webpage that comes up on my computer is not an accurate representation of what's really occurring on Facebook. I suspect my web-based email is similarly compromised.

My first hypothesis was that it was DNS cache poisoning. However, I changed my DNS server preferences, and I still get the fake page in question to show up. I have run every anti-virus and anti-malware program under the sun, and my machine comes up clean as a whistle.  So, is it my machine or my network, or both? Any insight the readers of this forum could give me would be greatly appreciated. The people behind this are real criminals, and they have harmed me both financially and personally.

Hey, sorry for the delay. :)

Please download FRST (by Farbar) from the link below and save it to your Desktop.

Download Mirror #1

If you are unsure whether you have 32-Bit or 64-Bit Windows, see here
  • Disable all anti-virus and anti-malware software to prevent them inhibiting FRST in any way. If you are unsure how to do this, see THIS.
  • Double-click FRST.exe/FRST64.exe (depending on which version you downloaded) to run it. (if you have Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8: Please do a Right click on the FRST icon and select Run as Administrator)
  • When the disclaimer appears, click Yes.
  • Click Scan to start FRST.
  • When FRST finishes scanning, two logs, FRST.txt and Addition.txt will open.
  • Copy (Ctrl+C) and Paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of both of these logs into your next post please.
