install a Firewall, scan your hard drive with a trojan remover or Anti-Virus utility. It sounds like he has planted a trojan then again do you have a firewall at the moment?

eh? are you on a network? at work? office networks: administrators can use software to see what you are doing, but you normally get an indication of this. If you are just on dialup at home then I find what you say hard to believe...

First, listen to good advice given to you by Phil, If you have no protection on your PC, you cant expect it to be safe.

Trojan scanner - www.moosoft.com
AntiVirus - Try www.download.com
Firewall - www.zonealarm.com or www.sygate.com
