hi,after very long unscheduled windows update today, i received your message that i was not being paranoid because someone was following my online activity. i already suspected that eg: some govt service had downloaded my entire drive; if you detected this, could you give me more details if possible? sorry if it's an annoying request. i don't know what info you would need from me, but if i got that message from you, maybe it's logged. many thanks, D
