    the most you would get would be their ip address, the name of their pc, and possibly a (very) rough idea of where they are. all of which are of little use unless you're going to report it to the authorities - in which case you'd obviously need proof a law has been broken.

    checking system/router logs, scanning for trojans using antivirus software, checking if active network connections all belong to you, and looking for suspicious processes running in the background are all ways of detecting unusual activity.

    Most decent firewall programs will allow you to trace an attack.

    With the IP you can do a NSLOOKUP and contact the ISP. They can get their service cancelled, it is a felony to "hack" someones PC
