Default I want to know why I am being hacked

Does anyone know who I can get help from?
Are there any computer whizz's that can look at my computer and tell me about the hacking that is happening.
I am willing to pay someone who has the skills and knowledge.

My ISP says they will not help because my computer get redirected off there network to a remote server occasionally, so it is out of there realm. When it happens, I have a different IP address that I cannot find on any searches.

People have told me to just do a system restore, but I want to know who and why.
I have spent hours and hours looking and learning, but I am at the point of "I just want to know".

It seems to me that it is happening through Nortons somehow????maybe??I really just don't know???

So I live in Melbourne, Australia.
Anyone want the challenge?

if you install Norton Internet Security or Personal Firewall that should stop hacking attempts on your computer.

what makes you think you have been hacked?

I don't think people should use Anti-Virus at all It just makes the Hackers and Virus-Writers Victorious.
