    Don't know how the laws are written in the UK. Here in California it's a crime to "access or caused to be accessed" anyone else'e computer without their consent. In other words, if you can prove the guy accessed your computer you have a criminal case. Proving it is a real science though. There are guys with PhD's in computer forensics that only catch the bad guys half the time (or less). My advice would be, if you're going to try to nail the guy, make sure you enlist the help of someone who's REALLY GOOD. Remember, if they catch you, then you'll be the criminal. Before I'd try anything like that, I'd make darn sure my computer was thoroughly protected against any future attacks or tampering. Who knows, once you get through with that part, you might decide it's no longer cost effective to go after your hacker. After all, the world will always be full of young kids with way too much time on their hands. :D

    I have to go to uni in a few mins, so I guess I just close this since it's not going anywhere.
