I found out that my computer was hacked recently, The hacker was using my computer  to open sites and was trying to open the network sharing on my computer while i was afk luckily i came in time to see what was going in . I did a factory reset of my computer but still believe i may be hacked as there was a file labeled 357 watch later saved to my desktop(it was an internet explorer browser file) which took me to a youtube page that had a song on it and i dont remember saving that file to watch later (nor do i generally use explorer) . i have run tcp view but cant really decipher if any thing malicious is going on everything seems to be going ok to my untrained eye. Any help in the matter would be appreciated .

Welcome Mir12345, and Welcome..

⦁ Please start by going to our  Tutorials and there is a topic about Have I been Hacked > [https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/have-i-been-hacked/], it was written by Lawrence Abrams the owner of BleepingComputer.

 

⦁ There is too much information to print it here, But please read it first.

 

⦁ If you still have problems, follow the Preparation guide for Malware Removal  and post all directions starting from item 6.

 

An Expert will deal with your case, when one is available if it requires further attention.

Thank You

Sorry if there was any confusion, as I can access it on both Win 7.1 and Win 8.1 computers, once logged in.
