controlling your computer.
They must have gain access to your computer via root user account on your Mac, and turn on remote login, remote desktop, remote service, screen sharing.
When you see someone typing across your terminal screen on your computer. Curse you in your computer. Did you video it???? You must video the incident on your HAND HELD VIDEO CAMERA.
I think they are monitoring you on your Macbook Pro computer.
They must have gain access illegally or HACK into your computer and computer network.
And Peer you thru via the Internet Access in your residential area.
I believe your computer have been Remote Login, Remote Desktop and Screen Sharing or they install a third party Remote Desktop program and gain access to your Root user account and turn on your Parental Control so that you did not get any form of previlege access to your computer.

If you have the exact model from above, (make sure it is the exact model) then you can do the Apple Internet recovery.
You need to zero out your harddisk.
Reboot your Mac and press Command R keys and go to the Apple Recovery.
You have to wait for about more than 1 hour or so depending your hardware spec to Zero Out your harddisk.
Then proceed to the next step to the Apple Internet Recovery if you happen the have the same exact model of Macbook Pro.
I repeat again, before proceeding make sure you have the same exact year model of your macbook pro.
Then .... click on the link below.
OS X: About OS X RecoveryOS X Lion, Mountain Lion, and Mavericks include OS X Recovery. This feature includes all of the tools you need to reinstall OS X, repair your disk, and even restore from a Time Machine backup without the need for optical discs.About RecoveryRecovery SystemOS X Recovery includes a built in set of utilities as part of the Recovery System. To start your computer from Recovery, restart your Mac and hold down the Command key and the R key (Command-R). Press and hold these keys until the Apple logo appears. This indicates that your Mac is starting up. After the Recovery System finishes starting up, you should see a desktop with an OS X menu bar and a "Mac OS X Utilities" window. Note: If you see a login window or your own desktop and icons, it's possible that you didn't hold Command-R early enough. Restart and try again.In order to reinstall OS X, you need to be connected to the Internet over an Ethernet or Wi-Fi network. The Wi-Fi menu is in the upper-right corner of the screen. Click the icon to select from available Wi-Fi networks. Choose your preferred network name and, if needed, enter a username and/or password.OS X Internet RecoveryMac models introduced after public availability of OS X Lion include the ability to start up directly from an Internet-based version of the OS X Recovery system. OS X automatically uses this feature when the Recovery System on the hard disk isn't available (such as when your hard disk encounters an issue, or when your hard disk has been replaced or erased). OS X Internet Recovery lets you start your Mac directly from Apple's servers. Starting up from this system performs a quick test of your memory and hard drive to check for hardware issues.OS X Internet Recovery presents a limited interface at first, with only the ability to select your preferred Wi-Fi network and, if needed, entering a passphrase. Next, OS X Internet Recovery downloads and starts from a Recovery System image. From there, you are offered the same utilities and options as a local Recovery System.Some computers that did not ship with OS X Lion or later installed may be able to add the ability to use Internet Recovery by applying a software update.Restoring iLife applications after Internet Restore of OS XIf your computer came with OS X Lion or later and you erase your hard disk and install OS X, you can download iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand from the Mac App Store. After installation, start (up) from OS X. Choose App Store from the Apple menu. Enter your Apple ID and password when prompted. Click Purchases. If you haven't previously accepted your bundled iLife applications within the Mac App Store, you should see your iLife applications appear in the Accept portion of the screen. Click Accept. You may be asked for your Apple ID and password once again. Your iLife applications now move to the Purchased section. These applications are part of the software that came with your computer. Your account will not be charged for them. Click Install to complete installation of your applications.Requirements for reinstalling OS X using RecoveryReinstalling OS X using OS X Recovery requires broadband access to the Internet via Wi-Fi or an Ethernet connection. OS X is downloaded over the Internet from Apple when OS X Recovery is used for reinstallation.OS X Recovery requires that DHCP is enabled on your chosen Wi-Fi or ethernet network, If you bought OS X from the Mac App Store, you will be prompted to enter the Apple ID and password you used to purchase OS X.The time required to download OS X varies, depending on the speed of your Internet connection and the version of OS X you are installing. If your usual or current Internet connection has requirements or settings not supported by OS X Recovery, either change the settings to a supported configuration for the duration of your OS X reinstall, or seek out acceptable networks from which you are permitted to access the Internet (such as friends, family, Internet "cafe" establishments, or possibly your place of employment with appropriate permission).Supported network configurations and protocols local Recovery System Internet RecoveryWEP Yes NoWPA/WPA2 Yes YesWPA-Enterprise Yes NoPPPoE (where there is no router handling the PPPoE connection) No NoCaptive-Networks (where you click an "Agree" button to access the Internet) Yes NoProxies (where specific proxy servers must be configured in network preferences) No NoCertificate-based authentication / 802.1x No NoWhich version of OS X is installed by OS X Recovery? If you use the Recovery System stored on your startup disk to reinstall OS X, it installs the most recent version of OS X previously installed on this computer. If you use Internet Recovery to reinstall OS X, it installs the version of OS X that originally came with your computer. After installation is finished, use the Mac App Store to install related updates or later versions of OS X that you have previously purchased.What to do if the installer warns that no Recovery System can be createdSome disk partition configurations may result in the OS X installer reporting that it could not create a Recovery System. In these situations, even if you are permitted to continue the install, you may want to quit the installation and create an external, bootable OS X hard drive with a Recovery System, first. You can continue your OS X upgrade on your computer's startup drive after creating an external Recovery System. Your storage device must have at least 13 GB available (after formatting) to install OS X Lion or later and a Recovery partition. These steps erase and reformat the storage device. This article instructs you on setting up a storage device to use the GUID partition scheme and the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format, which are required to install OS X and a Recovery partition on your external storage device. You should back up any important files that are on the device to a different drive. This procedure installs a version of OS X that is compatible with the Mac it was created with. Using this OS X system with a different Mac model may produce unpredictable results. Your computer's serial number is sent to Apple as part of this process to help authenticate your request to download and install OS X Lion.Additional InformationPlease note that OS X Recovery must be present on the computer's startup volume in order to use FileVault 2. Using RAID partitions or a non-standard Boot Camp partition on the startup disk may prevent OS X from installing a local Recovery system. See "OS X: Some features of Mac OS X are not supported for the disk (volume name)" for more information.OS X Recovery includes a version of Safari with links to resources on www.apple.com. This version of Safari can be used to access help resources at Apple's website and elsewhere on the Internet. The network requirements listed above also apply to the version of Safari included with OS X Recovery. Plugins and Safari Extensions cannot be added to the version of Safari included with OS X Recovery.Last Modified: Mar 18, 2014.

Make Mavericks Install USB with a Simple Terminal CommandWritten by Damien Zander on November 2, 2013In a previous post I went through the lengthy method of creating a bootable USB Flash drive that could be used to install OS X Mavericks as well as a really simple solution that involves using an application called DiskMaker X.This post will go through another method that utilizes a single Terminal Command#1 – Download OS X MavericksFirst things first, you need to download OS X Mavericks. This is a FREE download from Apple. Here’s link to it: OS X Mavericks #2 – Prepare your USB Flash DriveCreating a bootable USB drive for Mavericks requires a USB drive with at least 8GB of available space. If you don’t already have one, they are really cheap. If you need a good Flash drive, here is an affiliate link to a 16 GB flash drive: PNY 16GB Attaché 2 USB 2.0 Flash Drive – Black,Blue (P-FD16GATT2-GE) only $11.99.Before we can restore Mavericks onto the USB Flash drive, the drive has to be properly formatted.install mavericks usb pen driveTo format the USB drive open Disk Utility (located in Applications/Utilities). Plug the drive in into your Mac. Select the USB Flash drive from the sidebar in Disk Utility. Select the “Erase” tab. Make sure the Format is set to Mac OS Extended (Journaled). As for the name, leave it as “Untitled”. Finally click the Erase tab.One important note about Step 5, this will erase everything that is currently on your USB drive. #3 – Terminal CommandNow that the USB drive is properly formatted we can run the Terminal command that will take care of the rest. Terminal can be found in the Applications/Utilities folder.Simply copy and paste this into Terminal and press the Enter key on your keyboard:sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app --nointeractionSince the above command uses the sudo atritubute you will be required to enter your password to start the process.Once the process starts you will see this in Terminal:Erasing Disk: 0%… 10%… 20%…100%…Copying installer files to disk…Copy complete.Making disk bootable…Copying boot files…Copy complete.Done.This process can take a while since it’s coping gigabytes of data over.
