I had another account here, but I no longer have access to the email that I used to sign up with, so I can't retrieve my password.. 


I believe that I am infected/hacked by a hacker, the person has even claimed that they have accessed my computer before and now I think that they are at it again. I am almost positive that my network is hacked by this person, as the amount of clients on my DHCP client list exceeds the amount of users that are on my network, etc.. I suspect that this person might even have remote desktop access (i think thats what it's called) as well. 


PLEASE help me, I know that malwarebytes, etc doesn't pick up on hackers that know what they are doing and are able to disguise themselves. 


Thanks so much.

What are the symptoms other than the dhcp client list exceeding? Without a security problem this could be due to the long time duration of the dhcp lease.. It will assign to pc/device/laptops etc but holds for a long time whether the ip addresses/devices are used or not.. Try to make sure the lease is in a considerable duration.. Besides you can see the connected  host names by visiting to dns server if any.. (this thing is possible when dns dynamic registration is on )
