Well I would immediately go into your router settings and make sure all proper security is enabled for your router. Also check the settings within windows. Also, find the setting(s) in control panel that would normally allow a computer to remotely access your computer and uncheck the check box. I know there are some programs out there that can boot intruders(I think) but I dont know the names of them if there are such programs.
