  1. It looks like I am being hacked.


    Yesterday, my computer was locked,and I was alerted to call technical support - microsoft. I was involved in lengthycommunication with a technician. They assured me I was getting lifelong protection. I was told to make two bank checks that were scanned to them. Now, I am now realizng that is was a bogus telephone number that I called, and I was probably hacked. James Beers email: jabeers153@ gmail.com

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

    It looks like I am being hacked.

    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
