Welcome to BC....
If you were watching closely the files, programs...such as email and browsers...you should know what the criminal was
spending time looking at that could cause more harm...like passwords and user names.
Other than that...you removed the remote access software and you didn't give your credit card number, Paypal account info or similar
info. So, it is likely no harm was done. I would be wary of visiting that resume site again as it could be compromised by a hacker or intentionally
participating in the scam.
I suggest you run the programs below to clean, remove adware and remove malware. I suggest that you install an ad blocker such
as Adblock Plus in your browsers if you don't already have one installed.
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 Google Chrome and Avast.
After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.
