I was given a computer by my boyfriend, the tower was stolen?July so His friend, a new computer grad gave me a computer-installed w/spyware, he has harassed stalked me changed my sites switched passwords. Got into my phones etc... Paranoia they said--the ones w/computer experience. I have been called the Omnish LA girl of the year 2000,Iv'e never had cable tv, home phone, let alone a computer. Omnish NO-WAY1 I love to socialize,dance, Clubs entertaining, major in psychology, love to travel, Isreal, turkey etc.. I love God! Iv'e just been real protective w/ my life and media.I was never real comfortable w/unseen communication, the web(?), talking and exchanging info. w/people you really did not know. My girlfriend designed a website for me # myspace and it has been crazy ever since! I know I am all over the board but I need to know how I can if ever go back online SAFELY! Its like as soon as I go online "they" know. My girlfriend just had 2 hits spyware??? I didnt even know what a operating system was???!!! There is so much to say about the anger frustration and helplessness I have felt through these attacks online. I know this guy has hacking skills--but on a newbie, one who doesnt even know what history, cookies. spam adware, firewalls etc... If we had been both equally learned and competed, and he had won, Then i would be able to Say touche" but a newbie!!?? I t would be like going scuba diving w/ a begginner and telling them as we decide to dive out oh around 60,000.-- ''''''''''''''''''''''''and say"I hope you can figure out how to work your gear and oh yah! the oxygen---youll get it" right.POint made???? longleprdskirt reply appreciated(maybe someone can understand?

If you are for real, it seems you jumped into a swimmimg pool full of sharks without even sticking in your toe for a temperature check. Are you sure about all this?  I have a customer who swore his ex-wife's boyfriend was parking nearby and hacking his computer because he was getting strange emails and the senders knew his full name.   Looking at his computer and email, I saw that he was a chronic clicker and had a habit of responding to the directed side ads from "teen girls in his city who wanted to meet him".  In the nicest way I could manage, I explained to him that he wasn't being hacked but that he was simply a left-click-happy dumba55 and he needed to reel it in until he learned a bit more about how things on the Interwebs work. So in your case, you need to know enough or find someone who knows enough to intelligently analyize exactly what's going on.   Think back.  When you set up these accounts did you answer any secret questions that not only you but everyone else you ever met would know the answer to?  Man.  I recommend NOT using that computer until you can get it checked out by a pro or someone you trust with some good tech skills.  Sigh... and call your phone company and any financial institutions where you have online accounts where you think this person may have compromised your passwords.  Tell them your suspicions and pick a new password that no one who ever knew you can guess. You might consider closing any superfluous accounts like FaceBook, MySpace, Amish-life, etc. and only open new accounts after you learn how to secure your accounts from people who know you and who know the names of your favorite teacher and first pet. Heh... :)
