have u considered the possibility that your pc is being compromised, and used without your knowledge?

do you like to contradict yourself? in one part of the sentence you answer to Hookem that you "KNOW ITS NOT" being compromised, and at the end you state, "I AM PRETTY SURE I AM NOT BEING COMPROMISED"....
