Great :tazz:

Though I cut power at night and my ISP insists that I do not have wifi (though I had it for 3 years with them), and that no one can access the modem remotely. When I turn the power on in the am, I find the wireless light on and changes have been made. My status has been reduced to a contact, and she deleted the entire file that had the permissions in it. I haven't explored much because I wanted to get here, but she removed my butterfly avatar, for spite no doubt. I fear she is getting even more serious-she is already obsessed, she looked like a zombie with only one goal in life--get this computer. She started by installing her own wallpaper and gadgets--personalized it for herself.

The Explorer has stopped working twice with the message that a program is causing it to stop until I click close program, but I did not open any between the 2 events.

The priest who referred her has called on some other techs to help, but I have heard nothing. I don't know if the church leaders have spoken with her yet. Her husbamd holds a high position in the churches, plural and is minister in one--that is a lot to lose if she doesn't stop. I found and copied several IP addresses under adapters--would they identify her, ie give me solid evidence if she continues? (I had hoped for honest help if I called the churches.

Popups every few minutes (blocker is on), windows & cursor jumping, lots of redirects--I think it is malware.

When I open a window to enter text, it gets super tiny--she knows my vision is poor--I think this is her shrinking the text to less than 1/2 the size you see. I changed the font size but it didn't work. So far, I can see it which keeps getting rid of the hacker priority one.

I tried without success to delete Java yesterday. Also Adobe, though I do not know if it is a threat without the flash player.

Sorry about that my better half called with some food :)

I will be on now for a few hour

OK to work

Open Avast
[attachment=62478:Capture.JPG]

Select Additional protection > Remote assistance
Press the allow Remote control
A popup will appear with a code... PM that to me
Do not close Avast as that will break the connection
Do not press cancel
Although do the above at any time if you wish to break the connection

Then ignore my pm. The code is on page 5-I will get it. Then I will double check, as I took all the other steps ie Avast. Remote Assistance is open.

Control of which folder?

Should I install malwarebytes? if so, which is the real one?

Should I install a spyware program?

Best to go with Norton?

I am confused.

You can stick with Avast if you wish .. Or return to Norton your choice

Yes install then run malwarebytes

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.

Can she still access my computer? Does she have a hidden acct?

Thanks for the links for mbam--I usually had it but I have been busy with this.

I plan to run the malware cleaning guide--if I run into trouble, can I open another topic or stay here?

If she can no longer get in, :D Thank you! I will give it a few minutes while I eat to see if you are still here, and have the cleanup tool.

I had to disable my malware protection to install MBAM--could not find a way so I uninstalled it and reinstalled the Norton 360 trial version.

The computer is already running a bit faster, not sure of overall behavior yet.
