I am hoping someone can help me please. I had redrafted this post as I included results of things I had done such as Farbar logs etc and I may have done that wrong, apologies for posting the results I have just seen a notice off the moderators, so to start again.


I recently bought a new laptop and the C: drive is already full and I am having to update windows on an external USB drive, surely this shouldn't have happened within days of using.


Is this due to extensions in windows 10? Or am i infected which I suspect.


I have been hacked before and I think there are also issues with my router (code on the router login page looks suspicious - I am leaning towards the network being cloned - I have an open BT Wifi network which appeared shortly after I had a workman come round which I have reasons to believe he was here with the intentions to allow acxcess to my network) and after looking at the source code on certain webpages I think I have also picked up a keylogger on Facebook (Cavalry) as well so I will also post in the relevant section about that separate issues


I want to secure myself against these persistent attacks which I know where they are coming from, but as I have a child in the house I want to ensure we are not being attacked, so I have a lot to learn.


Thanks Kerry
