To "do FreeBSD"... interesting terminology. ;-)

What kind of "remotely" is this? If it's e-mail, add a blocking
rule for that particular address. If it's something else - what
operating system are you running where someone can be bugging
you remotely?

How do you know you're hacked? What are the symptoms, and on
what kind of operating system to they appear? How often? How?

You can find excellent online documentation about how to obtain

No reasonable person would deny this. However, with a working
brain, and with the documentation available, anyone should be
able to install the OS and the desired software.

It's not that hard. Really.

However, after finding out what FreeBSD is, you should ask
yourself if it is the right tool to solve your current problem.
Having a virus-infected system can be cured by wiping it off
the disk and re-installing an OS like FreeBSD, but having a
physical threat to your system (like a key logger, a wireless
keyboard, etc.) can't be solved easily by just software.

If you consider your problems that eminent, you should not
hesitate to ask a skilled IT person for help - a person who
will be able to do the proper diagnostics first, and then
suggest appropriate measures.
