If Dameware was not installed by you, and you don't get any help from the
authorities, you might also consider some of these steps to see what else
was done and how it was done to prevent it from happening again. Doing
these things may reduce the chance of actually prosecuting this person, but
unless you're really lucky, you don't have much chance of this happening

However, without the authorities getting involved, you probably won't get
any satisfaction against this person or persons.
