Check your opened ports
Can You See ME
Open Command Prompt and type:
---netstat -an |find /i "listening"
---netstat -an |find /i "listening" > c:'openports.txt (will list in a text file located in c:windows folder)
---Tasklist to get all process PID
---WMIC /OUTPUT:C:ProcessList.txt path win32_process get Caption,Processid,Commandline (to get process list and path will be located with the name process list in drive c:)
based on above info open task manager and end the process and usen your security soft to erase it.
An open port is not an indication of spyware. Since most modern spyware applications will only connect to the internet intermittently for a brief few seconds (not active) to post the collected data (keylogs, screenshots, etc.) it would be hard to catch it anyway.
Without getting into the sophisticated details, you'll need an anti-spyware or spyware removal application.
#1: Malwarebytes (Free)
#2: Spybot Search & Destroy (Free)
#3: Ad-Aware (Free)
#4: Super Anti-spyware (Free trial)
You may use a combination or all of them to scan, but please don't have more than one anti-spyware real time engine running at a time, as it may cause conflicts.
