I joined because I had my computer hacked and he used a key logger and somehow got into my email online and had my emails forwarded to him first. He took all of my information from my computer including pictures, documents etc. He breached many peopled security by doing this.I learned that you get the people that received emails from you to do a header for you and you can find the other server that it went to. My problem is that the IP address was "private" but I found out the police will track it. Any other advice how to find out the owner?  Anything that I can do to keep my computer safer and this not to happen again? I have a police report in .
Thanks everyone

I notice you use the word "he". Do you know this person or suspect someone? Protecting yourself from a dedicated assault is very different then taking standard safety precautions. Are you sure you didn't just get some type of ransomware or malware?

Hi, yes, I have an idea of who it  was and I don't know what type of free security ware is out here for me to use. He took all my documents along with emails, my pictures etc and told me he will ruin my life and I will have to sell my house.  I am worried because I can no longer access this site from my own computer so I have to use a friends.
