Welcome to BC! :)

 

First, if you are hacked, open command prompt as admin and type in:

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

to be more secure install adblock into your browser(chrome,firefox,safari, what-have-you) 

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the ipconfig will reset your IP address, and adblock well, it blocks obtrusive ads.

 

 

After that is done, we will go from there.

Please follow this guide and create a new topic in the Malware Removal Logs section.

 

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. Please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable. This includes your email addresses, banking, eBay, Paypal and gaming accounts. Anything of value. Those accounts should be monitored from this point forward.

 

How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?
When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

 

Good luck.

Moments before you said you had had your bank accounts compromised and were being threatened by others because of your computer's behavior. Now this???

 

The only accurate answer to this question is to disconnect the network and reformat the machine. You can never trust the OS completely again.
