Q: Is there any way I can find out if someone is monitoring my computer from another one? I mean, if i think someone is getting access to my laptop from their home or from any other place, can I find that out? If yes, how can I stop that from happening?

    First I’d be curious as to why you think that is happening.

    I’d suggest you scan your computer with your existing anti-virus software. A few more things you can scan with:

    http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

    If these don’t turn anything up, and you are still convinced they are inside your computer, your final option is to wipe your computer, and reinstall Windows. This will get rid of any software that snuck onto your computer.
