My younger bro downloaded some malware on my computer and it was hacked I think. The computer restarted automatically after installation. The weird thing is that the login account is none of mine. Totally a new user name and the other accounts were removed. How to rescue the device?

Probs wanna download MBAM, scan your pc, contain all the bad ****, restart.

But I've had my PC restart after installing some things. So it may not be malicious.
But be safe and just scan your PC.

- Restart Windows in Safe Mode, it will load only the basic drivers and services.
- Download Malwarebytes or Bitdefender, install them, and scan the system.

You can also attempt a system restore, assuming you have an USB recovery drive with the Windows 10 files on it.
If you really can't login or if the damage is too big, then you have no choice but to format the hard-drive, I hope you have a backup in that case.

I faced with similar issue a few months ago, and still couldn't unlock the device... Since that time I always use proxy server to protect my data from online snoopers. That's probably the easiest way to stay safe while playing.

boyfriend who's a techy-type guy says to access the drive from a linux or a mac, via a live CD or USB, or by taking out the drive and plugging it into one of those systems.

The only thing you can do is unlock it (This account or password) on your laptop.I know some ways that can help you bypass the login password to login to your laptop.
I have done it on my Windows 10 computer,https://www.winpwd.com/unlock-windows-10-without-password.html you just have to do what it says.

Don't mind me, just installing a fog machine. :LZSwink:


I can't stop looping this BGM while at work since I began to play PSO2. It just too good for mood booster.
How to post a picture there in the status feed?
So I was at the grocery store trying to reach for some small garbage bags on the top shelf way in the back. Instead of going all the way downstairs to find someone to help me I grabbed a broom and pulled it down. Putting the broom back I said, "Thank you for your service".
S.O.S.--10:16pm......two toddlers still awake....send help...
