Yy computer has been completely taken over by an anonymous individual

By doorethea ·
Please tell me what is happening to my computer. I am writing a book, I am on the 2nd draft. About a week ago, I discovered my Open Office seemed to have a mind of it's own. Soon I realized even without the use of the internet, some one has as much control over the entire laptop. Now here's the scarier part, in order, for whoever is doing this, to continue on with the spying and manipulating of my files, they must redo something every few days or hours to the computer physically. Stranger than that, after whatever they have put into my computer without actually touching it, my laptop gets noticeably heavier. That's how I discovered it in the 1st place. My manuscript for my book is being stolen every time I work on it. Can you please tell me what is happening to my computer and how can I prevent it from happening again?

ps: today I tried to complete a transaction in my PayPal account, they redirected me out of the webpage I needed to get to, five times.

Transferring your important files to a flash drive

I would recommend transferring your important files to a flash drive then taking it to someone to see if the files have viruses on them. Then If you want to fix this the free way you will most likely have to reset your computer.

Do a System Restore

Disable your wireless network immediately. do a system restore to the day before u started noticing this. install anti-virus. back up your data on an external drive. and you should be fine... If you cannot I advise taking it to a certified tech.. seems like you might have rootkit malware
