Default Compromised IP address

I have had a backdoor trojan on my home pc.
I have a dial up.

can i trace where the ip was stolen from or will it just show up as coming from my computer?

umm you can try to neotrace it... download neotrace pro .. it will trace IP addresses to their ISP.. but chances are they used a proxy for the IP so its kinda pointless doing it...

how do you know the IP was stolen anyways??? your IP is DHCP'd so its going to be different everytime you dial-up depending on your TTL

Because I noticed my pc freeze up and when I was able to get reconnected there were websites in my history that I didn't go to.
it's my pc at home not work.

I have no idea what's going on.
