Hi, I am nonimous.  I just registered today.  I enjoyed your posts and have been enlightened on a lot of subjects.


I have a dilemma.  I have been the targe to a MALICIOUS GROUP OF HACKERS.  These individuals have malicious hacking tools that allow them to hack every single computer I have, the most recent of whichis a Windows 8.


Within minutes of starting up my computer(s), they are hacked and I believe by means of the Infrared whch is placed on every doggone computer to allow interference.  I am just an ordinary citizen who try to live a peaceful, non-combative life.  However, I disagreed with someone who has friends in "high places" meaning individuals who can make my life difficult.


There are other problems these individuals cause, but today, I would like an input on removing worms from my computer.  Every single commercial anti-spyware is manipulated to allow "them" to piggyback on the actual antivirus softwares such as Commodo and Eset to name a few.  The anti-virus spywares do not recognize them as viruses or worms.


Can someone provide suggestions as to how to find and remove these viruses that allow them to attach my computer to theirs and they can watch what I type and my browsing from their whereabouts?

It does appear you may have Backdoor infections that are allowing other access a there convenience.

AS stated since it is probably best to wipe it and start over.

I would add this about it.

This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

Before you reconnect to the internet after reinstall.. Ask in networking how to secure your Router as they may have control of that also.
