Laptop probably infected

I really need some help. Back in 2012, my neighbor managed to hack into my network and hardware by exploiting my Bluetooth connection, I also suspect him of using RFID and having cracked my WPA2 connection (since he had a dongle pointed at my apartment).


I have since then removed all the hardware that was infected, bought a new laptop and phone and moved to a different place.


However, the person in question has recently found out where I live now. I'm having difficulty posting this. I'm also constantly getting "cellphone interference" on my screen, as if I'm receiving or sending a text message with my phone (I'm posting this on my laptop). This used to be the case back in 2012. I had the feeling he would send commands to my laptop through my phone. My phone is off right now and I'm still getting it.

Other symptoms include the "Ease of Access" On-Screen Keyboard opening every time an app/program starts and when I lock my laptop. This I find very strange, since it's clearly disabled in every Control Panel menu I can find.


I have scanned my computer with FRST and Malwarebytes so far, I will provide the pastebins. Hopefully the hacker hasn't altered them in any way so far. I'm also currently scanning with RogueKiller, which so far has found 15 infections.

EDIT: RogueKiller has found PUMs as well as unknown MBR code (Empty|VT.Unknown MBR Code) and is done scanning, I have added the report. I deleted all 20 infections. I'm very worried about the Unknown MBR Code though.

Any and all help would be appreciated, I'm really with my hands in my hair on this one. I'm 99% certain he or someone else is in my network again.


My laptop has been having extreme FPS drops in games, whereas at first I would have a constant 120 fps, now CS:GO runs at 20-50 fps max. Overwatch has become unplayable, as have many other games that I could play fine at first. I know my hardware isn't the newest, but... I'm running on a 1280x960 resolution.

Thanks in advance!
