    I've gotten this pop-up the first time a few days ago, now I've got it again. This seemed very suspicious, so I just pressed cancel.

    Anyway, I don't remember clicking on or downloading anything harmful on my computer, I never do that.

    Hacked computer

    My computer was hacked and I lost my admin rights. I tried doing a recovery, but that failed. Incomplete. Can't get to lock screen anymore

    Any suggestions?

    Email Hacked

    Hello Greg

    thank you for your response and the great information you provided.

    I use two step authentication for my email account and all important web sites. I also use the full version of Malwarebytes to protect my computer.

    But I will do the scans you suggested AdwCleaner and Limewire.com and let you know the results.

    I am worried though that the webcam installed on my laptop could have been hacked. I never use it and forgot about it, so never disabled it.

    Any suggestions as to find if it was actually hacked?

    thank you

    mike

    Is someone trying to hack my computer?

    Computer was hacked.

    Hi Windy,

    There are a few steps that we can apply to remove that malicious software from your computer. Before we proceed with the troubleshooting, we'd like to know the following:

    • Do you have other admin user profiles on your computer?
    • Were you able to access desktop screen?
    • Is your computer still connected to a public network?
    Looking forward to your response.
