    No.

    In a very real sense, if you have to ask such a question, you have no chance except when a "hacker" is seriously incompetent anyway.

    There are too many route obfuscation/redirection functions for you to overcome. Even a single intermediate redirection would be an obstacle you'd have no authority or tool/expertise to penetrate. Simply identifying the fact of a "hacker" (rather than a virus/malware/etc.,) is unlikely.

    It's near impossible. Unless you catch them in the act of hacking, with a lot of major help from outside sources you can forget it. They have ways of masking any bit of traceable info to the normal user to try and find them. You need professionals.

    I should have said without a lot of professional help in my post above. What makes you think you have been hacked? The best to to cut down on your risk is to run a firewall and antivirus program. There are a lot of free ones out there. ZoneAlarm is pretty good for a firewall and for free anivirus AVG, Spybot Search and Destroy, AdAware seem to work pretty good.

    Since switching to Linux Mint, I haven't needed anything but standard Linux functions. No more Zone Alarm. No more AVG. And both were very good at what they did. Not even SpyBot, AdAware, etc.

    It took some experimenting to be comfortable I could do it (mostly by switching my wife first after her Windows system died once too often), but I sure won't go back. (And she hasn't had a complaint in the past year either.)

    I do keep one Win XP laptop for an old copy of WDSC 7 for a V5R3 server, but I use RDP from Linux to use it.
