    Spyware can reveal all!

    Look for spyware.

    I'm glad you liked my old avatar. Unfortunately, one of the moderators did not like it, and asked me to change it (they seemed to think it was rude). The new one is temporary, until I come across something else I like. :)

    all an IP address is a address for your computer to access the outside world...sort of.

    Behind EVERY WWW address there is a IP address. and obtaining this address can take 3 seconds. So this person cant do anything with your IP except ping you to death (lol)

    In order for him to do all those things, he must have hacked your machine and/or accounts.

    I would check for Trojans on your computer. Use adaware, and a virus scanner, norton, mcfee, etc.

    Common Trojan programs are sub7 and BO2k.

    BO2k being the strongest IMO.

    Just change your passwords, and your IP address.
