Other than your anti-spyware programs and anti virus programs, what signs should I look for that my computer activity is being monitored? Will the IP show up in my firewall program? Are there any definitive ways to know 100% for sure whether or not something is up, especially if the anti spyware programs can't find the hidden files?

Thanks.

Processer Usage could be an indication your computer is being monitored.

If you're using a router, you can watch the lights on it to see if there's network port activity. If there is and you know nothing's updating, you're not using it, and no network apps are running... then you might have cause to be suspicious.

You also might want to read up on the command "netstat" and the more powerful "netstat -an."
Signature file is under revision. This will be back shortly.
