A few weeks ago someone I considered a friend hacked into my computer. I'm pretty sure I never opened any emails or attachments from him only used MSN messenger to chat with him. After I logged off I tried to sign back on and I couldn't get back onto MSN because he was using my account. When I got back online he had saved personal information about me in my MSN saved message folder.... Using them to threaten possible blackmail i assume....

I downloaded many free spyware search and destroy programs and they found many types of trojans, worms etc... I also noticed empty files on my desktop that I was unable to delete. every time I scanned malware was found. I sent my computer into an electronics store and they wiped it completely clean. I no longer find any problems by scanning with avast, but I still think he is connecting to my computer.

Is there anyway I can be certain that he is no longer accessing my computer and what can I do to beef up security? I would like to be able to get this stress off of my mind. Thanks for the time. Thankyou for your time.... Please help if you can!
