Hello all!  I'm new to the forum.  Just joined in fact.  I am hoping someone can help me out with some ideas regarding an issue I've run into.  Basically my computer is being monitored by my finacee with some software.  I don't know what she's using.  She apparently had them run a report on my usage of Soulseek, the Peer2Peer file sharing software.  The results she's getting back are showing tons of things I didn't download and haven't heard of.  Does anyone have any ideas about how something like this can happen?  Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.  I'm at my wit's end and it's possible that my relationship might be over b/c of the files I supposedly downloaded.  Thanks a lot!

Hello maatra23.

It sounds as though you might be infected with a P2P trojan.  We can help you remove malware and get rid of the monitor.

Please read the Instructions for how to start a topic in Malware Removal. Post the requested logs (MBAM, DDS, Security Check). We need the information in order to help you.

If she is actually spying on you, you may want to reconsider the relationship whether she ends it or not...  Seems like trust is really not good there...
