Question #1


Can a trojan gather information from your activity on a laptop that is not connected to the internet?


Question #2

If you use a laptop that is not connected to internet in the enire 2015, but becomes connected to the internet in 2016, can someone (like with a trojan), gather information of your activity on that laptop in 2015?


Question #3

Is disabling the network adapters enough to prevent the laptop from randomly connecting to the internet?


Bonus question

After formatting the laptop, it says that I have to activate windows (8 pro). If I don't activate it, will anything happen that will jeopardize the above and randomly connect to the internet or lose access to my files?


It only concerns wordpad. As I am trying to write a book and I don't want anyone to read it but myself.


Thanks in advance.
