  1. I'm hacked I think


    Next to the time in my taskbar is the word hacked. I am a novice and don't know where to start to find out how this got there. It was appearing every now and then , but is now there all the time. I'm assuming I should be concerned about this. I ran SuperAntispyware and found nothing.
    I ran "Wise registry cleaner" and did a full scan with my Avast virus program. Nothing seems to help. I am running Windows 10 Home Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362 on a Dell laptop. I connect by
    secured WIFI in my home and run the Avast firewall. I'm stuck. Thanks to anyone who could help. If you need more info let me know.

    :)

  2. YOU
    You Win User

    Thinking about Going back to Win8.1


    If want to disable IE, still can. However, can't uninstall it like were able to in XP/98/whatever.
    Here's how, although I find it useful in case Chrome or Firefox stops working and have to re-download it. *Wink
    1. Search for turn windows features on or off and click it in the search results.
    • I'm hacked I think [​IMG]
    2. When the app opens, uncheck Internet Explorer 11.

    • I'm hacked I think [​IMG]
    3. Click Yes on the warning dialog.
    • I'm hacked I think [​IMG]
    4. Click OK.
    • I'm hacked I think [​IMG]
    5. Restart for the changes to finish.
     
  3. sookie(2) Win User
    Password / security code Limbo .... Hacked by M$ ??

    Received "you've probably been hacked" warning [ostensibly] from M$

    After numerous repeats of warning & after receiving/applying "security code" - I reset my Password

    Attempted to review Recent Activity & find I am now
    Locked Out - neither new nor old Password works & "security code" received FAILS!?!

    Thus I'm reminded (repeatedly) of M$ overarching philosophy: "No good deed goes unpunished!"

    Now, to waste another hour+ of my life accessing/updating all the text files, devices, password managers and cloud files where I had painstakingly noted [now defunct] M$ Password!

    Presumably next is dance class, to learn the "authentication two-step" ...... ARGGGGGH!

    ------------------------ Update -----------------------

    Yup, apparently I have been hacked by M$ ....

    Changed Password, per M$ "security alert", and now am receiving this ever-so-helpful email "Out-of-Date Account Notification:

    "The most common cause of an out-of-date account is an incorrect password. Select Fix account in
    the notification bar at the top of the Mail or Calendar app. If your password is incorrect, you'll see a message asking you to update your password ..."

    Again ... "No good deed goes unpunished!"
     
  4. I'm hacked I think

    Pentium M

    Not sure what I'm looking at. Though when I do go to Options and then CPU it lists my CPU
    as Intel Pentium M processor 1.73 GHz, and then under that it lists speed: 799.9 MHz
    and then features and cache size.I ran the benchmark test and don't understand all
    those numbers, but while testing I checked CPUZ and it still says it is running at 800 MHz.
