Because even if it's not Law Enforcement or Spy Agencies hacking you, hackers are figuring out all these backdoors.

That is why you have UPDATES from Microsoft and Apple.

Spook agencies have to REPLACE the vulnerabilities their employees at Microsoft and Apple wrote in with NEW ONES when they know hackers found them.

They have employees at CISCO, HP, Barracuda Networks, Cloudflare, every company...and grad students at the mirror linux servers at universities.

Inserting backdoors and updating them all the time.

So quit buying technology until congress DEALS WITH the Ed Snowden revelations.

Nobody on here (including the spooks probably) has a secure computer or secure network.

As much as they want to pretend. Can't happen. Unless they are in a SCIF

FCC rule 15 made sure of that:

This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/47/15.19

Why does your device have to accept interference that causes undesired operation?

The WIFI on the laptop or the modem?

If the modem has no WIFI, and they turned the WIFI on on the laptop, they rooted the laptop and gained administrator privileges.

You can remove the WIFI card on the laptop but you'll still be rooted.

Check your access logs. See who logged in.

If it's the modem, you're screwed too.

These (but I think that it is one person with superior computer skills; he had a business "helping authors" that seemed to be about comps).

I don't know how to check "access logs," but this gives me a start to get some tech assistance here. Thank you.

This is a guy who thinks that he was born with "administrator privileges."

That's fine.

Easiest thing to do is wipe the hard disk, reinstall windows and drivers AFTER REMOVING the WIFI CARD.

But it takes a long time, and you have to backup all your crap first.

In any case have your geek friend check the logs.

Also there's a recently discovered VPN problem:

VPNFilter router malware is a lot worse than everyone thought
More affected devices. More damage. And what looks like an escalation in attacks
By Richard Chirgwin 7 Jun 2018 at 05:02

Asus, D-Link, Huawei, Ubiquiti, UPVEL, and ZTE: these are the vendors newly named by Cisco's Talos Intelligence whose products are being exploited by the VPNFilter malware.

As well as the expanded list of impacted devices, Talos warned that VPNFilter now attacks endpoints behind the firewall, and sports a “poison pill” to brick an infected network device if necessary.

When it was discovered last month, VPNFilter had hijacked half a million devices – but only SOHO devices from Linksys, MikroTik, Netgear, TP-Link, and QNAP storage kit, were commandeered....
