2013-03-23 17:51:20 UTC
So..for bout 3 to 4 years now this guy who is like 40 or 50 years old is stalking me I know hes around that age cause his photo on his profile and I traced the hack (virus) back to his computer and sent it back to him but I don't think it crashed his computer, he is still at it I contacted the police but they didn't do anything. I don't want this guy hacking me half the time he crashes my computer and sends me porn crap! which is totally nasty Im only 17 and hes like 30 to 50 years old. How can I get rid of him I don't even know him and I have never talked to him ever! Is there a way I could block him or trace him back and get into his files to see what files he took from me? or a way to hack to get my IP out of his computer or something? Any steps? I have never really hacked all I have done was blocked hacks and sent the virus back.

Thanks! PS. I keep blocking him but he keeps getting unblocked I don't know how.

I’m no expert when it comes to hacking, but…

I run XP on my computer. If you run a different version of Windows, this path may vary.

Firstly, on your desktop click Start\Control Panel\System. Now click on the Remote tab.

Make sure there is no tick in the box labelled "Allow Remote Assistance invitations to be sent from this computer".

Make sure there is no tick in the box labelled "Allow users to connect remotely to this computer".

Now click the Apply button, then click the OK button and return to your desktop.

Also, whenever a web site asks if you wish your password to be remembered, always say no.

If you run Firefox, click Tools\Options\Security. Under Passwords, make sure there is no tick in the box labelled "Remember passwords for sites". Now click the OK button.

If you use a different browser, I'm sure there will be similar changes you should make.

Once that's done...

Try this:

Boot your computer to the Safe Mode menu screen. You do this by repeatedly pressing F8 as soon as you boot up. Once there, use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode with Networking. Continue to boot from there, by pressing Enter. You will now see some drivers being loaded. There will be a pause at some point. This usually lasts for no more than 30 seconds.

Once at your desktop, download this free package.

When you click on the download button, wait for a few seconds and the download box will appear, without you having to enter your name or email address.

Save it to your desktop, unzip on start.exe...then click on Emergency Kit Scanner. Wait for it to open (this may take a couple of minutes), then get updates and run a Deep Scan (the scan may take a while):

Hope this helps.

I've handled a case very similar to this for someone. Switch to Linux; it's an operating system that is very, vey secure! Hackers use it, so they can hack, but can't be hacked back (easily, at least.) It's very hard to hack Linux, as it's open source and secure. I've linked an image of my desktop, and how it looks. I use Linux Mint 14.1 Debian.

In other words, Linux is used for techy people, programmers or people who don't want to get a virus or get hacked, as it's extremely hard to either get a virus, if ever or get hacked.

If you need help on the installation, feel free to contact me and I can help you switch to Linux.

*** Why Linux is the Most Secure Operating System ***

1) The Root System and Terminal

* Known as privellages. Have you ever tried logging into Linux Mint? ENTER USERNAME: You

must enter manually. SUCCESS, NOW ENTER PASSWORD. It doesn't actually say "Success"

but you must enter both your name and password, much like logging into Gmail or Yahoo.

* Because you cannot run any EXE(ecutable) files on it, most hackers don't take the time to

specifically code for Linux-specific viruses. So an image that downloads a Trojan on Windows will

do nothing to Linux, it's pure and safe. No affect.

* Sorry, password required. Unlike Windows, on Software downloads like for Chrome or Firefox, you

MUST enter your password.

* Encrypted. You can set up 128-bit encryption, much like the Government or FBI would use. So, if

a hacker would try to access, say a file he would find no file. It would be hidden in an encrypted

that is named whatever you want to call it. Let's say you named it Foxy. Someone clicks Proxy, a



A lot of programmers and technicians use this, as well as people who don't want to be hacked or get a virus. Now, I'm not saying you can't, but it's a lot harder. And I mean, a lot. Unless you have some expert hacker who can hack everything, in which case there's nothing you can do, Linux is highly secure.

1 being the worst and 10 the best, this is how secure these operating systems are.

1) Windows: 4.8

2) Linux: 10

Hope this helps! Let me know if you need further assistance.

*** NOTE ***

Try using COMODO Firewall, and see if that helps.

There is a way that you can get your IP address erased. So that it just looks like a bunch of zeros. It also sounds like he has a Trojan on your computer to make it easy to find you. If you have a laptop take it to the nearest Wal-Mart and have someone from the Geek squad clean it. While your there you could also ask them for advise on how to keep our computer clean.
