External access to my computer by some for people with problems to which they feel may be due to a problem of Microsoft.

In February, I received a phone call announcing that he was a Department of Windows software specializes in the examination of the problems I could be hard and try to find solutions.  Asked me, after a long sales pitch, go to my computer and with them, find a few concerns I had with.  This resulted in giving them access to my keyboard and the computer.  They responded by showing some recent files in which there was a record of the unknown parties and their attempts.

Once a land sale noted that they could solve these problems on this computer and on two other computers in my house for the sum of $350 per year. It sounded attractive and I "bit". Over the next few days, I could see the activity, but in some cases, the problem worsened. The second day an additional $ 250 has been asked and I foolishly allowed.  However, a week later had flown two additional transactions of $350 and $250 on my account.  I immediately went to my Bank to start a process to stop the payment of these fees and to investigate their origin.

Since then I have received many calls, trying to make me to authorize their making more work.  I refused to play this game.,.

What I'm trying to determine is if their access to my pc and access to private definitely files blocked?

Thanks for any help.

The damage is already done.  It is never a good idea to allow remote access.  At first I would run a malware scan with malwarebytes.  If you have financial information on computers I would you banks and change your passwords

The only way to ensure that you are not infected, is to re - install the operating system after a format.  Otherwise, we have no way of knowing what they were doing to computers.

They already have you credit card numbers.

In short, there is no way to block them without the re - install and it's kind of closing the barn door after the horse has disappeared.

Please download the free version of Malwarebytes.
Update immediately.
Do a full scan of the system
Let us know the results at the end.

  • Problems with accessibility for people with low vision problems

    The company I work, developing courses that are often made for people with a Visual acuity greater than 20/70. Thus, the requested solution was that courses should have a button that changes the size of the text, and the user can choose what size is better for him. The problem is that you can call a javascript function that makes Web sites, but the same features that make it, does nothing inside a captivate course. Due to the size of the land, there a lot of hard work to do 5 States of the text of a legend to each of these texts, because javascript are much more quickly and dynamically.

    Someone at - he has worked with such a prior problem, which has a better solution?

    No I have not met this particular query before.  But I think it probably means using Captivate would work in this case too.  With the exception of the course adapted and dynamic text that is generated from the inserted variables, most of the text within an release of Captivate gets transformed into images.  That is why the javascript function you mentioned earlier does not work.  There is no text to expand, only the images.

  • Laptop has Options of food (lid closed) for people with disabilities


    I use a monitor external when using my laptop Samsung QX410 and want to keep the computer when I close the lid.

    When you try to change the settings in the Control Panel/change Advanced Power/power buttons and lid, I have only one option, 'Sleep', which is disabled (i.e., grayed out). I checked that I have administrator rights and tried to change other settings of the power plan, etc., but can not set my laptop / privileges to activate the other options.

    The laptop computer was purchased with Windows 7 pre-loaded, and I contacted the support of Samsung. They tried to help me but eventually determined that it is a matter of Windows 7.

    Thanks in advance for your answer.

    ebaltazar - I set myself. This is the Samsung Fast Start program which causes the options disabled.

    To fix:

    Go to start programs/Samsung/Fast Start, which will open and you will see that the default setting is 'On '. Select 'off '.

    Return to the option of power control and the option to do nothing for lid close Action will be there.

    Pretty quick fix. Samsung surprised don't know when I talked to them.

  • A possible solution for people with difficulties to install Flash

    I've read through old discussions to try to refresh my memory on how to install Flash for Firefox. I seem to have the same problems in several threads closed - Flash claims to install, but Firefox still happily using the old version. None of the support helped him, but I don't remember how I fixed it before - the Flash Installer puts files in the right place and you must copy them manually to the Firefox Plugins directory. Until the files are in the right place, useful to use on suggestion: addons will not work. Now, if I could only remember how I figured out where Flash updates its files...

    He has got to work! After installing Flash, I had to manually copy ShockwaveFlash.class, NPSWF32.dll, FlashUtil11f_Plugin.exe and C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash flashplayer.xpt to the Plugins of Firefox directory. Your file names can be a bit different, of course, if you use a different version or a BONE.

    To further complicate things, Flash seems to have dropped support for older versions of Firefox. Install the last Flash in this way causes my browser (Firefox 9) crash when you try to play Flash. Adobe offers no help on what version of Flash is going with what version of Firefox, just to watch the release dates and to make a reasonable estimate. Decommissioning of a published Flash version shortly after Firefox 9 fixed the problem completely.
