I found bleeping computer as I was searching for remedies to hacking attempts. (i'm being chased by a psychopath). It seemed like a great place to start with chasing down a keylogger and other corrupted registry keys.


This is a brand new laptop w Intel i5, 8gb ram and ssd, running win10, and only a few months old. Internet activity on the machine has been limited, and very few downloads have been made. 


I've run several anti-malware/rootkit programs and have found "hidden" files and services.
