I suspect that my ex placed spyware on my computer when he lived with me. Though he cheated on me the whole time, he still felt it was his right to invade my privacy.
I believe he installed this was when I only had regular XP installed. I recently downloaded ubuntu beside my windows. I read that when I use ubuntu, it's impossible for programs installed in my windows XP to work. I am hoping that if this is the case, nothing he put on here 6 months ago will work. Also, he called me several times when I was working on another computer in front of this one, which leads me to believe he has some sort of webcam spyware too on here. I put tape over the webcam part and no calls after that, but I am wondering if either the webcam software he likely installed and the keystroke and screen monitoring that I think he installed are still working in ubuntu. I used to hear clicking like a camera taking pictures when I was in windows. So far, I dont' hear it yet, but I don't know if it really has no access over here. Please let me know.
