Hello all,

First time in this forum. I have a question I cant seem to find an answer to after searching the forums on here.

I am trying to see if my computer has been hacked by doing a NETSTAT-ano CMD prompt I read about on U-tube.

The message I receive when trying to do this is:

"NETSTAT-ano is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

I cant seem to get past this to check if my system has been hacked or not.

The only thing different I have done to the laptop was disable checkboxes under a system configuration utility menu on my computer to speed up my system.
Im not certain if this has anything to do with it or not.

I am using Windows XP on an HP Pavilion ZV5000 older laptop.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully I provided enough information.

Thanks in advance.

forget the -ano part. Just type in netstat to see activity.

The -ano part is useful, but there should be a space before it:

netstat -ano

So, the question behind your questions is "Why do you think your computer was hacked?"

Questions like this perk up my curiosity kinda like when one of my kids runs by me and yells "Dad! Where do we keep the mop and tazer at???"
