Hello Everyone!
So recently I have noticed  a few odd things going around. First I am almost positive my mother is monitoring my computer, but I am not sure how.
After a little bit of searching of her internet history, I found a website called WebWatcher. I asked her about it and she claims that she knows nothing about it.
So after searching about WebWatcher I found that hitting Ctrl+Alt+CapsLk will bring up a password box if you do in fact have WebWatcher installed on your computer, and it does on my computer. I have read many guides on how to remove Webwatcher and have not had any luck. I have used MalwareBytes, an old version of SpyBot, and have used Norton Anti-Virus.
The very odd thing is that my mother has no access to my computer, so that brings me to the question: How do I have WebWatcher? So could it be another program she is using to monitor my computer?
It would be nice if anyone could help me remove Webwatcher, or has other insight on how she is monitoring my computer.
I am using BrightHouse Cable Internet, I run Windows 8.1 on a Lenovo U510 and have basic knowledge of computers.

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 8 to the more appropriate forum.~ Animal
