Then its more that likely that the program that u r using is being exploited and is gaining access through it to ur system, in which case, a firewall on ur windows ME will not protect u, against a hole in the application.

someone told me this what do you think of it. Is it true they can listen in my modem even after i reformat?
where can i get some info on this.

ok new here but here goes
1.. the hacker knows what isp your using...
2..if he knows you phone number then all he has to do is listen in on your line wait for the moden to connect and there we go..
3 it could be sameone from the ISP company
4.. get rid of Win ME
5 go here
and test your ports,
if you have a port open then hes in
6.. what fire wall are you using..
7..i suggest the follow

for XP "Zone Alarm,,"
for others, Hack Tracker, with tiny personnel firewalll
as hack track will only monitor what is attacking your pc where as TPF will monitor what is going out of your machine..

i had a friend who a long time ago reformated my machine (in the Green eyed days) and he install a trojan, it was not untill i installed TPF(tiny personnel firewal) the i noticed this ,

also the hacker knows what area you live in....
spooky, must be someone you know,,as hackers dont make themselves known.. that would defet the object of hacking....
Date Burns

and he doesnt work for the isp
