How can I find out and stop them?
I'm sure they're watching this too.

He's always commenting on my activity.He makes it more than obvious he's doing it.He thinks it's funny.
I've already told him to stop,but he won't.

What kind of activity? With the plethora of social networking integrations out there, it's entirely possible that this person is able to piece together all kinds of personal information about you if you use Facebook and integrate it with several other activities online.

How does he 'comment' on your activity? Through instant messaging? Is he on the phone with you?

He's my roommate.He told me he knows how to remotely access my computer.
He comments on everything I'm doing.My computer is in my room.My door is always closed.He comes to my closed door and tells me what I'm doing on my computer.
I just got finished ordering a pizza. He said "So what kind of pizza did you get?"

What operating system is on your computer (e.g: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit)?

You know your roommate better than we do; but he is either a jerk, or worse is stalking you.

It may be time to tell him to leave. My son recently had three roommates, and one was a jerk. After a meeting with the other two roommates, all unanamously agreed the jerk had to go.

Also, who has the admin password to the router? Some routers can log who goes where. And your room mate doesn't necessarily have to access your computer to see where you're surfing to, if he has access to your router.

@smittygeek I wasn't able to access the attached file.I did look over my 'Remote Access' preferences and the box was already unchecked.I also wasn't able to go to that webpage in your other post.I think I have a TDL3 infection and it's compromising the performance of my browser.

@frank4d I am using Windows XP 32 bit.

@lunarlander I'm not using a router.We're only connected to the same cable jack.We have Comcast internet.There are two separate modems for each of our internet connections.

Since the person has physical access to your computer, there could certainly be some type of spyware installed. You might also check the back of your computer (if it's a desktop) for any hardware that doesn't look familiar. I'd even suggest opening it up and looking inside.

@smittygeek I wasn't able to check remote access the way you illustrated.Every time I try,it just freezes up and I have to close it.
I right clicked on 'My Computer' and went to 'Properties'.In Properties,I clicked on the 'Remote' tab and saw that the boxes for Remote Assistance & Remote Desktop were already unchecked.
Is this the same thing?
