Need some urgent help as I found my computer seemed to be controlled by some others. It’s so awful. What shall I do?
Thanks!

well if you are on a network, your system administrator should have the rights to access you pc and control it in which ever way he seems fit.
if its over the net I would suggest checking the firewall log , if you've got one

Please describe exactly what is happening. You may have a virus or some adware on your computer. Obviously, you should immediately run a full scan with your resident antivirus, and allow some anti-spyware applications to clean up your computer (Ad-AwareSE and Spybot Search and Destroy are both free; download, install them, and update their definitions and then run both).
If these steps fail to resolve your problem, you can submit a HiJackThis log to the HJT team for analysis and help:

Getting a firewall is your good choice. I can recommend one which will be helpful to you. One feature of this firewall is Banned Sites List. You can enter the IP address of that computer into Banned Sites List. That computer will be blocked.

Links for these are in my sig. You will also see one for ZoneAlarm (a free firewall) and FreeAVG (a free antivirus) I can recommend both highly. The links for these are in my sig also.


While you are at it. You may as well install the free aČ Personal Link below.

a-squared (aČ) is a complementary product to antivirus software and desktop firewalls on MS Windows computers. Antivirus software specializes in detecting classic viruses. Many available products have weaknesses in detecting other malicious software (Malware) like Trojans, Dialers, Worms and Spyware (Adware). aČ fills the gap that malware writers exploit.
