"I think, I think I am Therefore I am, I think ..

(Of course you are my bright little star, I've miles and miles of files)
(Pretty files of your forefather's fruit and now to suit)
(Our great computer, you're magnetic ink)

I'm more than that, I know I am, at least, I think I must be.?

There you go man, keep as cool as you can
Face piles of trials with smiles
It riles them to believe that you perceive the web they weave...

.... And keep on thinking free!!"

To prove that someone on the internet exists you only need to acquire their birth certificate.

On the other hand, if you are demanding that the OS hacker who is messing with you by hijacking your internet protocols prove to you their existence, then you are on the same ship as I am. They will never come clean. We live in a society.

I was actually contacted by a school mate who claimed to have hacked into my computer, just to brag about it. :ROFLMAO: Our University held courses in hacking into servers, which the military is recruiting for.

Sadly for him, that was just my honeypot where none of my personal files were kept. I had modified my computer's electronics with a soldering iron to give it the same level of security as a nuclear powerplant with physically separate operating systems, just for those situations. :p

You could put power switches on Molex cables powering harddrives to make them physically inaccessible to attackers when internet is connected. On these old drives, one could set the jumpers to master on the switchable disc, so that one selects operating system with the button. When both drives are active, master takes over and boots without internet nor network drivers, where the slave drive is treated as quarantine (read as plain text, but don't copy nor execute). When only slave is given power, a clean slate system boots with internet but no physical access to protected files. The account should not have any admin permission to flash the BIOS. Then browse through a virtual machine with a write protected virtual disc.

If one does not have two harddrives, one can also just disconnect the only harddrive's power and live boot with Tails OS and a Tor browser from a DVD.

Today it's however very cheap to get physically separated mini-computers, which is even more foolproof. Then never connect any internet to your work computer.
