i met this guy online a while back who seemed a bit off. recently i found out he has been cyberstalking me the entire time.
he knows exactly what i am doing on my PC most of the time and knows my entire browser history.
i've reformatted my PC already but he still knows what i have been doing!
i'm really creeped out...
i am familiar with PC security but i can't figure out how he is doing this and it's driving me insane!
does anyone have any idea what he is doing to get my info? or any ways i can detect it?

  • i don't have remote access enabled
  • i have run spybot s&d, malwarebytes, anti-virus, etc; they did not find anything out of the ordinary
  • i don't talk about what i do to other people
  • i do not use social networking
  • it is not someone i know irl playing a prank on me

Hello, How are you connected,wired,wirelessly on a router?

Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.

Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  • Flush DNS
  • Report IE Proxy Settings

  • Reset FF Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List Winsock Entries
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.

Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan

  • Under scan settings, check Posted Image and check Remove found threats
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.

NOTE: In some instances if no malware is found there will be no log produced.
