It makes it harder, not impossible. Crunch can handle passwords with spaces.

You can't break in with filtered ports unless the router is exploitable and that's pretty rare. As long as you don't fileshare u should be alright. If she is familiar with backtrack and u get emails with links its a good chance she is trying to hack ur computer. Other than that u seem pretty secure unless u purposely open ports for someone to get in with. Bad advice removed
Creating RAT packages and sending them to people? I don't think this is appropriate advice to be giving people.

My guess would be that it's a cracked copy of Windows, not a hacking tool. But you never know

You mentioned that she has been accessing your emails, have you changed your email password?

Women.......

Anyway, if I were you I would change every password I have on websites, user accounts, WiFi, etc. Odds are she has one of your passwords and that you have used this password for multiple things. My next step would be to search for malware, but you said you've already done this. Next, power cycle your modem from your ISP. This will cause it to obtain a new external IP for itself (in most cases). Now see if she is still on your case.

If it were me, I'd prefer revenge to justice so if I still had access to her house I'd do something nasty like wipe her hard drive. However, I cannot condone such behavior, the best payback in your case is justice. I would contact the authorities and let them catch her in the act.

emaraszek-wifi is now shut off (wifi is called radio on isp site), i don't use duplicate passwords, power cycle?= unpluging it for a while..did that. no malware detected(lately). would like to wipe her hard drive...but won't...like the idea though.

how can i tell if she has set up a user account on my comp...allowing a backdoor access for her?

Format and it's all gone. System Recovery will put the computer back like the day you bought it, including any preinstalled programs the manufacturer had on there. Either way, if your data is on the C: partition it will need to be backed up or you will lose it. (If the only partition you have is C: then you'll need an external drive or something similar.)

If the drive is big enough you can.

Backing up an entire partition by imaging would defeat the purpose, though, since it would save everything - including any nonsense your ex may have put on there. The safest way is to backup just your data (pictures, documents, movies, saved games, etc) and format the drive. Keep in mind that you will need your Windows disc (or HP Recovery discs) and that you will also have to reinstall all your programs.

If you decide to do that, be sure and ask any questions you might have before you do it. Once the format is done it's too late to change your mind.

(And for all the experts out there, yes, I know there are Unformat utilities, but we wouldn't want to count on them to save our data.)

profdlp- would the system recovery to factory specs, be a suitable solution to take care of any rouge spyware possibly installed?
thanks again for the help

Yes it would. Not to be a Johnny-One-Note, but keep in mind that every last thing you have added since you got the computer needs to be backed up or it will be gone for good. I would recommend you make a list of what you want to keep and post it here before you start. That way, if anyone else notices that you may have forgotten something important we can remind you to check. It's also a good idea to make sure you have all the discs and keys for any software you have added since the day you bought it. Most keys can be fished out of the registry - before the format and reinstall, that is.
