I wouldn't rely on AVG.

I'd grab a Linux LiveDVD from a different IP and computer and scan everything from that; run Hijackthis. That way you can be sure your HOSTS file and DNS aren't borked (if your router DNS is rerouted somewhere through DNS spoofing, that could be it).

NoScript & Adblock...

If it's gotten THAT bad you probably will take some time to clean up.

As a side note, thanks for reminding me I'm not over paranoid.

Update:

So yeah none of anything you guys recommended did a thing to help. All drives wiped clean install even a new storage drive and the same folks on my game channel.

Any other tips on how they could be doing this? They DSOD'd me today which they can't seem to do when I have a VPN on but they're still able to get to my game channel and see my browsing history even with a VPN.

Any other idea's on how they might be doing this?

Well this is more of an extreme way to narrow it down but can help you determine what is the cause.


Set a Bios password so at first start up you have to enter a password for the OS to even boot.

Remove Windows, install a Linux distro... if your not familiar with Linux start with something like Ubuntu or Linux Mint

Install a VM for Windows for your gaming.

If just browsing the web, shopping, forums, bill pay utilize Linux

For gaming use the VM.

If it is software based it sounds like you could keep reinstalling it without knowing, possibly an ad-on for one of your games or something. If that is the case then it will be isolated to the VM.

If it is your brother the the bios password will put a stop to it unless he is smart enough to remove the battery on your motherboard to reset CMOS, which will let you know it is him.

If it is another piece of software not associated with your gaming it should not work on Linux as the code is different.

If it is still happening after these steps have been taken then it's either being done at a hardware level with a sniffer, which you should be able to trace out so long as you have access to your switch/router, provided you are using wired.

If you are using wireless the signal can be intercepted and you will not be able to trace it down.

Finally there is also the chance that you acquired the same IP from your ISP. Log into your router, release the IP address, unplug the router for a few hours to help ensure you get a different IP. Reconnect your router and make sure the IP address changed.

Again if this is definitely not a hoax these steps should isolate what is the cause.

I don't think this has been mentioned but there is some trickery that can be done with a exploited broadband router. You could try either replacing the router or daisy-chaining a second router that only has your PC on it. In other words

Internet->cable modem -> router 1 (everybody else in house on it) -> router 2: just your PC.

Also, make sure UPnP and WPS on the router(s) is disabled. Doing this "double NAT" could (may not) break certain things (voice chat in certain pc games/game consoles/stuff that uses bit torrent, for instance) but I'm assuming it would be worth it to track down the source of this issue.

Of course, just doing some random searches booted into a Live Linux CD distro (and don't sign in to googe the site, chrome the browser or anything else) and seeing if you're still tracked would I think tell you something about if it's something infested in Windows or something on the network level. No need to break out the DBAN if it's not necessary. Right?

Also it really shouldn't be hard to renew the IP address from your ISP (unless it's one of those annoying MAC-lock ISPs). Usually there's just a "renew" button on the router's web interface for WAN.

Theyre white I know that much and its definitely on the network level, perhaps new gears but of course daisy chaining wouldnt do anything about the main IP. Open source OS sounds like a bad idea.

Why would you think open source is bad? Being able to see the source is worse some how than closed source? You can use a WinPE-based thing instead of linux if you want although it's a bit more complicated to get set up since you can't just download an iso (may have to slipstream network drivers and insert a web browser...wasn't easy last time I did it thought that was ~2008). Being on a read-only medium is the advantage. I thought you weren't sure if it was an infection on your PC or not?

If it's your ISP tracking your searching, the first thing you should do is encrypt your search queries. Many people don't know this, but when you use Google you can actually use HTTPS by manually entering https://www.google.com in the URL of your browser. Downside is if you click on any of the site links in the search results, THOSE sites will open as http:// and not be encrypted, and will be logged as such.

It won't stop a keylogger from capturing what you type and sending it to the perpetrator, but it can obfuscate your searches so some punk at your local ISP or network admin on the school LAN can't sniff your packets and figure out what you're doing.

The primary packet sniffer most people use is wireshark. http://www.wireshark.org/ also you have to install WinPcap http://www.winpcap.org/ together they will show you pretty much everything little thing happening on your network. HTTP, HTTPS, SSL, UPNP and tons of others...it's supremely full of information. Prepare for brain overload but you may enjoy it smile.gif plus it's completely free.
