If your using wifi you have changed your passwords and logon for it didn't you,if your unsure phone your isp if they supplied it and they should do a talkthrough how to do it.Run malwarebytes to see if that finds anything,also save all your important data to a separate drive. You i presume have all your software and operating system up to the latest spec (i use file hippo for the software).worst case scenario is a complete reinstall.

Thank u.. But what can I do with the IP address I hv of the hacker

Having the IP address of an hacker doesn't count for much, because a true hacker will take necessary measure to safeguard themselves.

If you regard the incident serious enough, which you apparently do. Then contact your ISP using the advice by mole1944.
