    The only way someone could access your computer is if they know your IP address. If they do know then you should have variable IP address's. The address should change everytime you logon to the internet. So just disconnect or reconnect. You can try to go to Start--->Control Panel---> Network connections. Then go to the connection you are using. It should disallow any users without your password for your account. You may want to change your account password. Other than that, I would take it to get fixed at a store.

    I bumped right into a software the different day called IamBigBrother. you position in it on a computer and it receives thoroughly hidden. you may then watch what's happening on the computer because it occurs (including what information human beings get correct of entry to) possibly that's what you're searching for.. more beneficial than a keylogger.

    What you describe has nothing to do with anyone accessing your computer. The packet transfer could be a result of adware or any number of programs you have installed on your computer.

    I don't think it is anyone accessing your pc. But I do agree that it could be adware or any other programs that are automatic on startup. For getting rid of adware, try ad-aware SE personal. Download it here: http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-Personal-Editi...

    1.)Install a Spyware (Xoftspy) It's a powerful Anti-Spyware.

    2.)Install a Firewall. (Mcafee) It's good!
