  1. My windows 10 PC has been hacked and all the permisiions have been changed


    My pc has been hacked, I believe this was done remotely several months ago. The hacker/hackers telephoned my house and said they were with talk talk and needed to install security software, I followed their instructions and downloaded a programme which game them control over my computer ( yes I know this was a stupid thing to do). I got suspicious when they kept on repeatedly asking me to logon to internet banking. Luckily I didnt do this so my bank account is secure. The situation I am now in, is that all my files and documents have been stored on the D:\ drive, these are important documents and photographs of my family and work related stuff form over a 10 year period. I can not get access to these documents as all the permissions have been changed and I am denied access. I have recently updated windows 10 which didn't help me. I do not want to lose any of the documents or family photographs that are stored on the D:\ drive. and would greatly appreciate any help the community can give me. Note: I am a basic user so would appreciate simple to understand instructions. (Imagine you are talking to child lol)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. OS X Leopard Hacked for Intel PCs

    Just one day after its release, Apple’s new OS X Leopard has already been hacked to work on standard Intel-based computers. Admittedly it isn’t guaranteed to work 100% yet, and is more than likely illegal in some way, but all you need to give it a try is a patched DVD image, a zip file with a patch and a USB flash drive. After that you’re just three easy steps away from running the new operating system on your Intel PC (SSE3 and later) but unfortunately there’s no AMD support available yet. As many PC owners have a slight dislike for Macs this may not be too appealing to everyone, but you can take a look at the procedure here.

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
