    Remote access

    Hi zabby937

    Did you allow those Tech Support scammers to have Remote Access to your PC, they would have asked you to allow that?

    Once you have turned off Remote Access, they can no longer access your PC.

    Open Control Panel - Programs and Features, order that list by Date Installed

    Check for any software installed on that date, like TeamViewer or LogMeIn, if you find any remoting application like those, uninstall it

    Other than that, you have taken all the right steps and your PC will be fine, you do not need to worry about this further . .

    Microsoft Scammer - Remote Access to my Computer

    Hi T1R027

    This is very common these days, these scammers are not technically proficient and rely upon an innocent user to give them remote access

    If you have Reset Windows 10, you have done the right thing, you have nothing to worry about and no need to clean install Windows

    These Tech support scammers typically add software to remote to the PC, they then deliberately corrupt Windows in order to scam money from the user.

    Once you have Reset Windows, anything they have done to that PC will be removed, there is no need to re-format and re-install
