Lately it appears as though 'somebody' is in my computer, similar to when you know you got a virus or another program is running or downloading in the background - I was wondering if there's any way to tell who was/is doing this - I was running Windows XP and then upgraded to Windows 7 and it happened in both - various files now and then were being erased - then I finally realized I didn't ever check the modem firewall as I had an imac when I ordered the wire/wireless service - so I stealthed the modem firewall and it
seemed as though the erasing was stopping but my email passwords were being changed every week or two - I removed the hard drive from one computer and replaced it with another and put Linux on it, but the
email passwords of yahoo/gmail were still being changed occasionally - I'm thinking it's my g/f's ex, who's also in the room using a computer, and there's no apparent problems other than I have to clean it up for her, etc. now and then - any ideas would be appreciated - thanks  RJ  {zerobs}

   I would stop using the computer in the same room as your g/f's ex and not leave your computer in a place where he can use it while you are gone.  Then I would change the passwords on your yahoo/gmail accounts and not tell anyone (not even your g/f) the new passwords.
   Anyone can access your yahoo/gmail accounts from anywhere if they know your passwords but only if they know your passwords.
