I have over the past week has been under serious concern for all my private information I have stored on my computer and my computer. My computer has been the victim of an intrusion by a "friend" that went behind my back then threaten me to release all the personal information and all the other things I have on my computer. This person has threatened me that he has placed a keylogger and a RAT-file apparently. When I have read about this kind of files then I understand what a damage they can make to a computer. I have now received help with my problem and a kind person took their time to help me and gave me many advices how I would be more secure against attacks like these.
I don't know if I'm paranoid, but it feels like someone is on my computer and I can't really let go of the incident that happened to me and now I'm trying to find ways to make my PC more secure and I have been searching through threads on this forum and I got a lot of good advices but it's one thing that I can't understand how to do, replace my old firewall with a new one and I have searched everywhere but I can't find an answer for my question and I got referred to this section to ask my question to you guys and hopefully you can help me out.
I've found a free firewall that serveral people recommended other people to use this free version but I can't figure out how to replace this firewall with my old one. I have Windows 8.1 on my PC and I don't really know which firewall I have right now but I have never changed it so I guess it's the original one that you get with Windows?
Is there a kind soul out there who can help me with my problem?
EDIT: Here is a link to the firewall they recommended. http://www.agnitum.c...-suite-free.php
