Possible, yes. Probable, no.

Is this just a general question or do you think someone is doing something to your computer?

Well, I'll respond with general tips then.

Anything that's on the Internet is potentially vulnerable to attack/hack/compromise. To mitigate the potential for attack or compromise or infection, make sure you keep everything that has any Internet component to it up to date. Your operating system isn't the only thing with patches. Make sure all add-ons in your browser(s) are updated. Make sure you keep your Internet-aware applications updated. It should go without saying to keep your antivirus and antimalware programs updated as well. Use available filters on internet-aware apps. Example: Don't leave your Yahoo IM open to the world - instead, use that contact list and only allow those people to IM you. The same goes with Skype or Facebook.
