How am I getting hacked?

Specs: Linux
So there is this hacker, I presume he is human.
He knows the following about me:
-what names I type on facebook.
-what websites I go to

I have a firewall, anti-virus, antispyware ect.

How is he doing it?

Umm. DONE. I even formatted my computer. Its like he is sitting right next to me. Its like he is inside my head.

I just want an explanation(besides the rootkit) to as HOW he is doing it?

The other question is, how do you know that he knows? Another thing to try, go to a different computer, log into facebook, change your password, and under security options log every other computer out, and then change the password again

Your operating system is given as Linux. For the future, when starting a new thread please state the operating system if it is different to that which is given.

Hacker could be nearby monitoring your internet. Best change your wireless pass phrase (key) to one which is more robust.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I don't want to mention how I know how HE knows.

I assume from what I can observe that he can go in and out of anything. This guy is an absolute freak.

He's got my IP address(which is extremely easy to do) so he can "follow'" what websites I go to?

Is this even possible?

So here is the truth, if it is truly your ip address that is being traced(Instead of your system having a rootkit). These are the steps I would take.

1. Kill off your connection to the internet(unplug your computer/router)
2a. Ensure that there is no rootkit as suggested above. (rkill, tdsskiller,other back door software)
2b. Ensure that there are no other security issues.
3. Reset your router, and change the security to something different.
4. Have your IP address changed by your provider
5. Ensure that you don't accidentally give out security information that allows it to happen again.
