I was having strange proglems with my computer for 6 weeks. Decided to investigate C drive. Found new folder, opened it. After reading all files I could open, I realized this program had changed values, invaded every where it possibly could. Keylogger installed by a family member, is what it turns out to be. I contacted an expert the next day. He did not take the time to read the files I printed out from this program. He did try several remover programs on disc and flash drive. Nothing worked. He suggested I reformat the hard drive and reinstall OS. I did that. When same problems started happening, I realized the reformat had been blocked or stopped somehow. I had not re-entered my email addresses after reformat, but autocomplete was working anyway. If this is the case, that tells me the hard drive was not reformatted. Which of course, means keylogger is still here. After reading several files to my expert, he realized my entire operating system is involved, all ports are open, and likened the situation to blowing out all the doors and windows of my house, and taking the roof off. I have no bank accounts, or credit cards, and cannot pay online for keylogger removal programs, as suggested by some helpful folks at another forum. My expert says we need to find a way to change every byte into a zero on hard drive to fix this. Any ideas? Thanks for reading.
