Since several weeks now I have the impression that some mean spirited person is trying (and succeeding) to access my Notepad (Windows 10).
First, I found additional entries on my modem. That stopped after several resets and password changes.
Then, I had the impression, that somebody was deliberately blocking my mouse movements, and also: an offline browsergame I sometimes play kept logging off for no apparent reason. I found a bluetooth process, switched it off (and disabled the bluetooth device), and those problems stopped.
Now, I found a LAN process, which I haven´t noticed before and that has no business running, does it?
I mostly use the notepad at home, but it would be possible for someone to get as close as one meter through a storage room with free access which is next to my apartment. Also, the panel for the internet and telefone connections can be accessed by any of the neighbors. Direct access to the modem or Notepad is rather improbable.
So, now I would like to know
a) if my suspicions have any grounds
b) all the vulnerabilities and how to protect them.
Would a BIOS password help? Which Windows network settings provide better protection? Should I reinstall Windows?
Thanks in advance for your advice!
