They seemed to be fishy right away, but they kept calling and calling so I eventually let them use this seemingly legitimate logmein123 program thingy.
The guys claimed to be MS employees and they said Windows Live had detected some stuff on my computer. They had some trouble because my computer's regional configuration is set to Spanish and everything is in that language. He tried to change it to US English, then UK English, then Afghanistanian Indian...by then he tried to open IE and I manually shut off my modem so they didn't get do anything. I called MS and checked online. Their phone number is supposed to be a Michigan one, but I'm guessing they're doing some kinda wiring. Anyway, I ran a few scans and cleaned my computer but I wanna see if anything else is missing so here's my log.
So here are my file logs but GMER would not work for me. I tried 3 times and each time my computer crashed. This happened 3 tiems and it had never happened to me before this.
I have these HijackThis logs, though.
safe mode from today:
While trying to get out of safe mode, it said:
which roughly translates to: "Other users have logged in on this machine. If you restart windows, they could lose unsaved information. Do you want to reboot?"
normal log from a few days ago:
Spyware Doctor log from today(everything was removed)
Spybot said my computer was clean, but after Spyware Doc removed that backdoor thing, this showed up. Another remote access thing according to this website.
Am I screwed?
