  1. My computer has been hacked


    My computer has been hacked and a hidden user has gained access. In an effort to delete default users, there are several now, I still cant find out how or where they are.

    I have disabled network sharing and turned off Wi-Fi and so far I haven't detected the hacker/hackers..

    My questions are:


    1. which option would be the easiest, since I have 2 TVs and a printer that use my Wi-Fi, so that I don't have to enable both network sharing and Wi-Fi each time I want to go on Netflix or Hulu, etc..


    2. Can I set up a home network allowing only those access? If so how?

    and lastly


    3. how can I erase/delete all unwanted, hidden and non hidden users, from my computer permanently?

    :)

    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.
