Long story short here is what happened and what I did. I awoke at about 4:30am to my laptop running but when I got over to it, it went to sleep. I checked last wake which was at 3:36am. I checked to make sure I didn't have any update permissions which I did not. My computer is set to need my permission for any update. I checked the last update ran and it was when I did it myself the previous day. My sleep settings as always were set to 5 minutes. I then checked the process history and verified my computer was logged into and that the search process was utilized. I did not have a TCP viewer downloaded but upon downloading one I do not think that they left a backdoor. My investigation has stalled here. I have purposefully stopped using that computer just incase there is a ip address in some history somewhere. So my question is can I find a history of ip addresses so that I can check that time and find the culprit.
