I hope someone can help. What kinds of things would I find on my computer if my husband was somehow monitoring all of my Internet activity? I was searching through all kinds of things that looked suspicious to me...but also clueless. The computer was purchased used, if that matters. My husband has been reading me email from 2 accounts, and I have no clue how he got my password. I saw that the computer has something called an internal crypto device, and a private key service installed somewhere... I also notice that he's using firefox instead of IE, which is what we've always used. Is there something specific I should look for? Ill provide any other information I may have if needed..again, I'm not so computer savvy. :-)

hello, you should run the Antivirus program. Look for a keylogger. Change your email password from a different computer. If needed post your AV scan log here.
