Looks like you have been scammed Liza.

If you have any Bank details on your computer I would inform your bank to change you cards.

Not sure what's happened here but I would disconnect the PCs from the net, change your passwords again. Do a search for a program called Teamviewer or some alternatives, scroll down a bit for list and remove it. Only then go back on line.

Looks like there has been a problem with a Glitch on PCA and I have asked the FE to remove my posts.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

You say that that "you got them from MS website".

Them - Who are them?

Could you clarify with a little more detail?

Hi

Also there is LogMeIn, GoToAssist.

Press Windows key + R type msconfig in box Enter Go to start up Tab Disable all Apply Restart

Once restarted cancel the message about selective start up - we will come back and enable start up items.

Go to control panel Programs and features and look for any programs installed in the last few days - uninstall them - restart as needed.

Then go back to msconfig - start up items and enable those items you want to start when Windows starts.

Liza, did someone phone you and get you to install a program so they could help you with your pc problems?

Thanks for your speedy reply. Pareto Logic was the guy and the other one is Trev (is on my laptop which I stopped using, I will come back when I log into it). Pareto Logic came on my pc and there was trojan virus so I got into MS to ask what was going on I got this other guy Trev and he then gave me a whole cock and bull story and I fell for it and lethim take out the trojan and install ms defender he said (I have to check). Its a long story. Last friday 31st May I was ordering from here PC Advisor the Google Envy9 MiniGadget 9" Android tablet but my pc was going off everytime so I went back once or twice to type password and get in then when I was in I needed paypal and details were being asked (I didnt give) so I turned off and then decided to change my password for Windows.liza

Liza I am not sure as to what you are stating. Start again in detail. Pareto Logic is a programme not a guy. How did you get in to MS?
