Might want to go through some of the many "how to do safe computing" tutorials on the web. First step though is securing physical access. Bios password is the best way to start. This way they can't even get to a logon screen. Just don't forget it :-)
Using an administrator account only is not even recommended by Microsoft.
Reasons are many: starting with the fact that anything you do, like get malware, under your account has full privileges, due to your being admin, to anything it wants.
Are you using passwords that can't be guessed?
Unless something is being stolen from you, you are not being hacked. Simply put hackers are thieves. Clearly you have some concerns about an ex. Seen this many times over the years and have yet to see it pan out unless she has physical access to your laptop.
Bluetooth is for connecting keyboards, mice, etc. You can disable it if you desire but it is a doubtful vector for your issues.
How old is your laptop and what do you use it for?

I bought this a few months ago. When I tried getting on my computer, an administrator user was my option but my computer stated that the GUI wasn't found, disconnected, or on another computer. This was after I used ADS to erase a bunch of hidden files. I then switched users to mine and my password didn't work. After about an hour I reverted to an earlier save point and my password worked.
I've also found a blurry picture of an oriental girl in perhaps a bar. One time I was looking at the event viewer and was writing down the ip address and when I was done, I saw the ip address change domain owner or something like that. The ip address belonged to google group 6 Mark Monitor in the Mountain Time (I'm Pacific and my time has been changed to Mountain from Pacific on my last computer).
Do you know if I'm supposed to have a lot of users like:
ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES
Authentication authority asserted identity
dan dukes (firstname.lastname@example.org) LAPTOP
Distributer COM Users LAPTOP
Event Log Readers LAPTOP
Local account and member of Administrators group
Performance Log Users LAPTOP
Performance Monitor Users LAPTOP
REMOTE INTERACTIVE LOGON
Remote Management Users LAPTOP
Service asserted identity
System Managed Accounts Group LAPTOP
TERMINAL SERVER USER
This Organization Certificate
I hope you can answer my questions and thank you for your time if you do. I've been reading Bleeping computer trying Tweaking in between trying to raise two kids by myself while scraping almost a life by selling crap on eBay. That's what I use the computer for.
Also, do you know why the MTB states this:
Error: (01/19/2017 08:02:32 AM) (Source: Microsoft-Windows-User Profiles Service) (User: LAPTOP-RJB2UNS6)
Description: Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off.
Thanks again for taking the time. I have to package up some things and take them to FedEx and USPS.
