They took over my computer
2 nights in a row while I was connected with live chat through the help line and sent many computer logs to them through "secure mode" haha. Why wouldn't I? I had the blue screen with the yellow and blue warning on my screen & also a warning box that one of MY files was missing, (that really concerned me). They proceeded to put hijackThis, SupportLogMeInRescue.exe.,run that log box thing and left it on my computer, etc., etc., on my desktop as I intermittently dozed off til 3:00AM. It is a work computer so I normally do not deal with security issues, but I could be most of the titles I read on this website only worse. I actually bought
the spyware. From what research I've done it is falsely advertised rogue material. I do have a working firewall, antivirus and antispyware. Windows Live OneCare has been catching most Trojans. I did have a bad downloader for awhile and still have VirTool:WinNT/Mader:E that cannot even be quarantined. I'm sure this is not my biggest problem. They stole most of my programs I believe, passwords, I guess credit card numbers, whatever these people do. They left a CCleaner on my desktop, but after my reading noticed that it is .exe. I don't even know where I found that because when I pull up the program it just says CCleaner.com v.2.10.618 MS Windows XP SP3.
Since I fell asleep I never released them from control of my computer. Like I believe that matters. I totally believe they still see what I do. Everytime I go to a page I haven't been to or especially this sight, the pop-ups are constant. Usually it is just one pop-up on a new page like it takes a picture. They showed me how to take a picture of the screen. They could see my screen like they were looking at it. They would respond to things I typed before I submitted it. They were seeming to rather enjoy themselves. Have I now totally & completely destroyed a computer and become a victim of identity left along with my daughter whose myspace passwords were "hijacked" to use their terminology
? If so, any suggestions? If not, any suggestions??? I apologize for such a distasteful introduction. I hope you receive this post & it is not intercepted. Not sure of knowing anyway to find out.
