    I paid a guy 50 bucks for hardware liquid cooler installation for a computer I custom built. He also installed Windows 10 and Word software on it. Is it possible for him to have access to my computer? Should I buy a new windows from microsoft instead?

  3. HACKER PROBLEM

    1. You cannot restore *restore points* that have been deleted

    2. You have to prove you have a Hacker first then see...

    Payback time! How to catch a hacker | ZDNet

    3. To prevent you need to figure out how the person got into your system. What kind of protection do you have? Part of keeping intruders out has to do with the kind of protection you have.

    And, it may not be a hacker at all it might be a virus or Trojan or just malware. I would suggest downloading and scanning with...

    Malwarebytes Cybersecurity for Home and Business

    Then make sure you Anti-Virus is up to date. I would also suggest after you scan you change your passwords, however, again... after you scan with MalwareBytes. If none of that works then you need to take your PC to reputable shop and let them clean it
    for you.
