Hi there, it's been a while since I have been here and I have some questions about being hacked.
I hope I am ok to post in this section, it seemed the most relevant, although I don't want to remove the problem just yet as I want to try to find out how and who is doing it!

Here goes.
Over the last few months I have been noticing random things happening on my laptop.
Such as windows being closed or opened that I hadn't used.
Lap top shutting down at seemingly random times.
Internet history being deleted.

I kind of presumed that, since it is a relatively old laptop, it was just crashing and doing things itself.

But then I noticed other things happening.
Like bikini pictures in the recycle bin. I have also returned to my desk to find that hotmail has just been signed out of before I have even signed in.

It is not possible that someone else in the house is doing this I don't think. I want to find out who is doing it and how, so where do I start?
I have tried to stop using the laptop in the last week incase my details are being farmed etc.

Also I found that someone had been trying to reset a hotmail password too! But so far none of my accounts have been compromised.
