Windows 7: Need help understanding the functions of certain drivers.

05 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 32 bit Starter Version
Need help understanding the functions of certain drivers.

I have a windows 7 Starter computer and having had it for 2 years I am very familiar with it. Recently I have been noticing strange things appearing on my computer and files I cannot open or even give myself permission to open even though I am the administrator. I have found copies of video pasted to my computer of myself being video-taped through my webcam when I was unaware I was being taped. I believe my husband has somehow put spyware on my computer or is using a network adapter or internet gateway to view my computer and administer control over it through his HP laptop. Can you tell me what a Broadband 802.11n is used for and Atheros AR8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet and Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport are and if any of these items could be the "spyware" he is using to connect to my computer? I don't have great knowledge of computers but I know enough to know things are not right on mine and that he is somehow connecting and controlling my computer and just need some help understanding the above to be able to find out how exactly he is doing this to stop it. Thank you for your time and help.
