    I am Suspecting that a hacker has taken control of my PC


    This expectation has an evidence against it. First of all My Windows defender was disabled by the red error message " this setting is managed by your administrator". I thought that the way to fix this is to edit the registry keysIn registry i moved to >HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Policies > Mircosoft > Windows Defender. I can highly expect a hacker is spying on me. And to fix my Windows defender i edited these keys. There was a key named "DisableRealTimeMonitoring" which i deleted because i knew it was a virus writer's attack. But i caught something suspicious in this scree

    I was hoping someone could give me a list of step by step instructions you use as a guide to clean virus, malware...etc. so I can keep my PC clean if it gets infected.

    thx

    Windows 10 Refresh due to suspected hacker

    I have a basic question.

    I suspected a hacker installed a keystroke tracking on my computer or something similar.

    Unable to get my Lenovo computer (which is also suspect) to launch bios, I tried all instructions F 1, 2, 12; Escape Key, using the Security Recovery option (there was no VEFI Firmware Setting to choose. So I decided to install the Windows 10 refresh option,
    which worked. I have Windows 10 pro from work that I wanted to install, but still cannot get the bios to come up on startup, after attempting everything I saw to do this. As a result I am still suspect that the hacker invasion is still on the computer and
    is somehow stopping the access to my computers bios at startup.

    I am concerned that even after the refresh, my computer may be compromised due to the explanation above, but thought this question could be better answered here.

    Question: Does a Windows 10 refresh eliminate a hackers tracking or access (and all my passwords have been changed as well) on my computer?

    Thank you for your help with this question.

    Can’t connect Xbox one controller to pc

    Hello SubieTY,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Initially, we need to pair the device to show up in the list while connected through Bluetooth. Check with the below mentioned steps and see if it works.


    Hope it helps.
