Hello Nanae

In order to reassure your beloved mother you must tell me what type of Internet connection you have. Also what you is your operating system, the type of antivirus programme and firewall. In some cases, just leaving your computer run while on connected on Internet, if you are not stealthed, you may be the victim of intrusion.
