I am being SPIED ON and I dont know how to stop it. Pls help

hey my two laptops are being spied on for a long time, I lost all my privacy in my home, I cover the webcam but they still can hear me its very uncomfortable, I went to the police but there is nothing I can do since I have no enough solid proofs. I already formatted my computer but they still have acess somehow. I know that bcs they send me messages all the time from fake fb profiles with comments and jokes.I dont know exacly how it was made for it might have been someone actually using my computer without me watching or me clicking a link. I'd be more satisfeid to b alble to get make a complaint to the police, but i dont know how to do that here in Portugal.
but if you know how to just protect myself please let me know,this is a serious issue I just want to be left alone and know that I am alone in my house with my family like I should be. THANK YOU so much for your attention.
