A relative has accessed my computer and as far as I understand, she receives a text or e-mail whenever I send an e-mail and can then read it. It's not a case of just passwords being accessed. It's some sort of Tracking - maybe the router is involved. Please help me to identify and remove it from my PC. I feel invaded! I have Windows XP.

Hello dizzydancingdude,

I am shifting this topic to the Am I Infected forum since you haven't posted any logs.

Please let us know what security programs you have installed.

Could be a keylogger if you are sure your email password has not been compromised.
See what Super Antispyware can find.

Many thanks for your help!!!!!
I am certain that my email password hasn't been compromised and I was told that the 'bug' wouldn't show on a normal spyware scan.
I'll check which security programmes I have tonight & look for Super Antispyware and report back.
I'm really grateful for your advice.
