someone got onto my laptop & installed a remote app of some kind so that everything I do with my laptop is viewable to the other party as well as what I say. Short of wiping out Win 7 (64 bit) entirely, is there anything else I can do?

 

Its not malware, virus, etc. have run malwarebytes, rkill, avg, windows essentials, etc a zillion times.

'Start - Control panel - Remote app and desktop connections'. Ensure that Remote connection is disabled. Then 'Control panel - Programs and features' and look for anything like 'Teamviewer' and uninstall it, or them if more than one.

 

If you see any applications in there that you don't recognise you can always google the application name to find out what it does.

Turn off/ Disable your microphone if you think someone can hear you. Turn off your camera, too.

 

Disable Remote Connections:

Windows 7
  1. Click the Start button, and then Control Panel.
  2. Open System And Security.
  3. Choose System in the right panel.
  4. Select Remote Settings from the left pane to open the System Properties dialog box for the Remote tab.
  5. Click Don’t Allow Connections To This Computer and then click OK.

also it may have been a google app? Everything I say and everything I do on the laptop the other party knows. I suspect that the inbuilt webcam and microphone on the laptop is being used.

How do you KNOW that you are being spied on?

 

Have you blocked remote connections?

Have you turned off your camera and microphone?

 

It would be easier for me to offer suggestions on what is installed and what is in Startups and Tasks if you post the lists mentioned below.

 

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

 

Post the three lists mentioned below using CCleaner.

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Startups. On that page you will see a list of Windows Startups and at the top tabs for each browser and Scheduled Tasks.

At the bottom right of that page you will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste the list of Windows Startups and Scheduled Tasks into your next

post. Please do that.

 

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Uninstall. On that page you will see a list of programs installed on your computer and at the bottom right of that page you

will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste that list in your next post. Please do that.

As you can see your topic has been moved to the Am I Infected....forum. Per my request.

 

Malwarebytes - Clean Mode

  • Download and install the free version of Malwarebytes
    Note: If you have Malwarebytes already installed, you don't need to install it again. Simply start from the next bullet point
  • Once Malwarebytes is installed, launch it and let it update his database. You might have to click on the little arrow by Scan Status in the middle right pane for it to do so
  • Once the database update is complete, click on the Scan tab, then select the Threat Scan button and click on Start Scan
  • Let the scan run, the time required to complete the scan depends of your system and computer specs
  • Once the scan is complete, make sure that the first checkbox at the top is checked (which will automatically check every detected item), then click on the Quarantine Selected button
    • If it asks you to restart your computer to complete the removal, do so
  • Click on Export Summary after the deletion (in the bottom-left corner) and select Copy to Clipboard. Paste the content in your next reply

If you are unable to run a scan using MBAM:

Follow the instructions in the thread below. Make sure to download the MBAR linked in it. Let me know if you're not able to launch it and run a scan.
https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/198907-requested-resource-is-in-use-error-unable-to-start-malwarebytes/

 

 

Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop. (compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10)

  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Scan button.
  • When the scan has finished click on Clean button.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.
  • download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.

Why I thought I was being spied on? Because of a bunch of cryptic emails that always were describing what I was viewing or writing and were accurate. It wasn't coincidence anymore.

 

I had Shaw (who provides the internet service) look and they thought it might be something (software/app) that used the inbuilt webcam & mic. If the webcam & mike are powered off (as you suggested earlier), are those types of apps/software still effective?

 

Thank you for the amazing help :-)

Did you disable your security programs...especially your antivirus and antispyware including Malwarebytes before using Junkware Removal Tool?

If not, do that and attempt to scan again. JRT is compatible with Windows 7.
