There are four people in my house- myself, my twin brother, and my parents. I know, for a fact, that one of my parents has "broken into" all of the other parent's computers, and all of the other parent's e-mail addresses. Obviously, the capability does not stop at this parent's computer, and- not unconcerned- I'm trying to take every single precaution that I can to protect my own security and privacy in what I do on the internet and with my own computer as well as the home network in general.
Ironically, the parent who's conducted all the break-ins accused the other parent of using a specific software, named "SurveilStar Any Activity Monitor," to monitor all the computers on the network. More information about Surveilstar here: http://www.any-activity-monitor.com/ I've combed my computer as best I can for any sign of this software, as my Event Viewer did record some login attempts while I was away from the computer before this allegation. But based on its description, it is supposed to be incredibly difficult to detect. So either it's actually there and I haven't detected it yet (or anything like it), or I am just suffering from incredibly heightened paranoia by all of the things that are going on with the one parent having the ability to simply break in to any computer or e-mail inbox, and the apparent lack of compunction this parent has about using these tools repeatedly.
I'm also concerned about what our router can and cannot do, but I will post concerning issues about that elsewhere.
So, obviously, what I need to know is whether or not there is any kind of spyware such as Surveilstar or anything else on my computer. Regardless of the answer there, I also need to know recommendations (short of physically moving out of the house) to keep my computer free from any kind of monitoring spyware such as this one.
For reference, I'm running the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium. Setting all personal problems that are going on in the family aside, I really just want to make sure my laptop is as guarded, safe, and private as it can be.
Thank you very much in advance- the DDS log should be posted below!
