1) Disconnect from the internet.

2) Take your computer to a security specialist if available.  If none are available, call the Geek Squad.  

That person will sweep your machine for malware and also help you secure your network.  Good luck.

Shouldn't be all that much, maybe a couple hundred when all said and done.  The problem with trying to get help over an Internet board for something like this is that the issue may be a combination of spyware, remote access, an open web server on your machine, and more on the software side PLUS physical hacks like a key logger, open router, etc.  

We can suggest tools for scanning for some kinds of software but not all.  We can't do anything about potential hardware holes as we would generally need to see it from the inside (be physically present).

An alternate way to go it is have a local computer shop make your data recoverable and back it up and then replace all of your hardware....new computer, modem (cable or DSL) and a new hardware router.  

And it goes without saying...change all your passwords once your system is secure.  You might want to consider changing email providers altogether if your ex is capable of doing a password reset or recovery because he knows the answer to your "secret questions"

Sorry the news isn't better.  If you can prove it is him doing this, you should also be able to get him in some legal trouble over this.

Sounds like malware, not some remote mess to me.

Try running Vipre PC rescue, you can download it on another computer since you cannot use yours well.
Put it on a thumb drive and run it on the infected computer.

It's most likely not your estranged hubby.

I have no strong feelings about.  The steps I posts are broad and basic, to match the perceived expertise of the user but there are probably better versions already saved in the PAQ.
