    My computer got hacked


    I was working on my computer when it got hacked and a “representative from microsoft” with an Indian accent got access to my black screen to show me the local and foreign IP addresses. Has my computer been compromised? I have changed all my passwords and I am using VPN now.

    :)

    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

    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.
