This is more of a general IT/technology question. I'm on a password protected Wi-Fi network and I just did a scan for viruses (nothing came up). I'm still worried someone can see my web history. Is that possible? If so, what else can I do to make it more secure?

    Without knowing password, this is absolutely not possible. As you have anti-virus protected, and you configured the system, as and when any attack/illegal activities will be happened then the anti virus informs you immediately. You can take more measures, but the system is slowing down gradually.

    Depends on your network and what you mean by web history. If you are concerned about your work seeing where you surf on the internet, then yes they can track you. Your home network, maybe your ISP can track your browsing. What are you most concerned about by you web history? If you are trying to stay anonymous then I would look into getting a VPN.

    Who manages the wireless network? Who else has access to your computer? What about your ISP? Someone somewhere along the way – including the NSA and CIA – can view what you're doing to some extent.

    I have also heard, I don't know how true, is if a VPN provider is pressured they can provide the information to the authorities that you are trying to hide. So no matter what we do someone is watching us.

    It is, of course, possible. It will be possible for as long as your computer is powered up and has an accessible route to the Internet or your Wi-Fi (or other networking technology).

    It's also such a small chance not only that anyone would hit on whatever opens access but also that anyone has even the slightest interest in anything that you do, that it's a near complete waste of time even thinking about it.

    Well, that assumes that you refrain from activities that catch the attention of perhaps the NSA. If you spend time reading Jihadi sites or negotiating human trafficking pay-offs or doing similar, then you might have reason to be concerned. If not, then you shouldn't worry much other than whether or not someone will sit at your keyboard and look at whatever they want.
