Hmmm. Never heard of such a thing. I would suspect a roommate or ex-significant other, someone that has actual access to your computer or local area network..

Do you have the usual Firewall and anti-virus programs in place. Run MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware. Delete everything they find.

Yep did all that.found about 3 keyloggers and other types of malware.They just keep coming back.
I tried asking comcast to change my dynamic ip but they said no,but then again there is my comp's ip.
I have no where to hide.
They took my license code for spyware doctor from my email, got into constant guard from comcast,the list goes on and on.
Again i found an antispyware that found the keyloggers but then again they just come back.
I think the ones who do this are microsoft or a gov agency.maybe?

Not a chance!

Try an off line cleaner like the Kaspersky Rescue Disk and/or Microsoft Offline Defender

@Xhi, I am skeptical. A prank maybe.

Needs to set DeviceFullSecurity key in registry to 1

0=Disable 1=Enable 3=Default

Tip was posted many times in Vista forum.

Thank you all so much for the advice.I have been using kaspersky before i go on line.They even got into my android and left nasty messages on my browser.
Rap? what is the registry path to device security?I just joined and didn't know this was posted before.
I had to go to my bank and change the password,then got messages requesting my password.man this is really bad.i am using Ubuntu writing this.
I ran windows 2 times today and still same b---s---browser freezing, downloads not responding.
I am a total target.
I was researching on line and there are two things you cannot stop.Microsoft and the Gov getting into your computer.I think it is one or both.
Changing passwords on line with key loggers and screen shots will not work.lol
The only real problem i have is ,i cannot play some flight games i play with Linux.I wish i could do away with windows,it is getting frustrating.
I guess i will run the damn os a million times. i paid for it i should be allowed to use it.

Best thing you can do is shut your computer off when you are not using it. If you are using it and don't have to be on the internet then disconnect your connection until you need internet access.
When your on the internet look at your hdd light and see if it is blinking fast or just a few blinks every now and then. If it is blinking rapidly and your not downloading or surfing the web then disconnect your connection and see if the blinking stops.
If your machine is off or your not on the internet then the only person that has access to your system is you.

Is your pc allowing remote connections?

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

If it is then turn it off.

To find it go to: My Computer, then system properties at the top then on the left go to remote settings

Can you describe the steps you used to reinstall Win7 14 times?
Also tell us what type of PC you are using (Laptop/desktop, etc...).
