Windows 7: My computer is being controlled by remote host using powershell wmi

My computer is being controlled by remote host using powershell wmi

I can't remove the management snap ins or disconnect from the remote host.
This is my personal home computer.
I just want to connect to the internet. The route shows I am connected to a spoofed network
then the internet. In otherwords all my communications email voip go to this host network.
Not only do they control my pc and home phone. They are able to influence my life in many ways. for example I am only allowed to email certain people . and only certain people are allowed to email me. if I try to meet someone online im only allowed to meet whoever the remote host wants me to meet. I know what services are supposed to run and what services are not needed. because I like to play games on my pc.
I don't need windows biometric service running and there are at least 50 services I don't need and can't disable.
I don't want my pc to allow remote connections at all. Please help.
I'm scared. I try to fix but always get messeges like access is denied.

I would hit f8 after the bios splash screen and try a system Restore Point. If that doesn't work, you could try to bring up MSCONFIG at Start/Run and look at what's autorunning at startup. Go to the Services tab, check "hide MS services" and see what's autorunning there.

If none of that works I would burn a Kaspersky boot disk and do an offline malware scan.

At CP / System / Advanced System Settings / Remote there's a check box. But I'm not sure if it only controls Windows' built in remote control or third party progs as well.

The more I look into this, the more my suspicions are confirmed that the Remote setting pertains only to "Remote Desktop Assistance", Windows' own built-in help desk prog. And this post would seem to confirm that: http://www.sevenforums.com/2580551-post2.html

So don't count on this setting to prevent most malware from doing its thing.

Would it help while looking for the problem to disable your modem/router? So You have no connection to the outside.

In this situation I would recommend a full diskpart clean (this has to be done when booted from a Win7 disk, then reinstall. This will ensure every bit of crap is gone and you start fresh. If you need Windows 7 install media, download using this, on a clean PC. (Get your product key from the sticker on the back/bottom of your PC)

Backup sensitive info but do NOT restore to the clean install before you scan it for malware with Malwarebytes or Superantispyware.

Cheers

I tried to reinstall windows but the hackers used a special program called sonic burn or something like that. Anyway my retail win 7 home premium 64 bit disk has been changed and when I do a clean install it loads a revised windows 7 with all hacks installed. I'm going to have to contact Microsoft to ask for some new disks. I've lost all my files and pictures I've had for over a decade. It's been a aweful experience and I don't even like using my pc anymore.

@Tyfahra

You shouldn't have to get a new dvd for windows 7 retail. That should be unwritable.

I hope you can understand me. I am going to give it a shot.

If you want try to save your pictures. Use another computer, download a Xubuntu live cd/dvd. It might take some time to download do to a new release is coming out on April 23, 2015 write that iso to a dvd/cd. After that is done put the CD/DVD in the other computer. Choose try Xubuntu. Open terminal (Looks like a command prompt).

sudo apt-get install clamav
sudo freshclam (this will take some time to update)
type sudo fdisk -l to see what the windows partitions are
Mount windows 7 partitions they all should be on the Xubuntu desktop, right click mount. It may already be mounted. Do the same for all drives on the desktop that are not mounted.

Type mount and hit enter.
Look for something similar for each windows drive
dev/sda1 /media/liveuser/win71

clamscan -ri --remove /media/liveuser/win71
clamscan -ri --remove /media/liveuser/win72
clamscan -ri --remove /media/liveuser/win73
clamscan -ri --remove /media/liveuser/win74



If that works and cleans the files.

Only if clamav cleaned theses files

Now, look in again in the windows 7 drives on the desktop and see if you can find your photo and files.

Plug-in a usb flash drive

Copy your files & photos to the usb drive

eject the usb flash drive by right clicking the drive icon on the desktop.

Eject the dvd-remove disk and close drive.

Push and hold power button. Till it shuts off.

==============================================

Now if you think you have lost all your data anyways. Disregard what I said above. On the computer that is having the issue. Insert the windows installation disk. Turn off computer-Push and hold power button. Till it shuts off. Now, boot up to the windows 7 installation disk. This could take up to 48 hours or more. When you see the installation screen hit shift f10. In the command prompt type diskpart and hit enter. Now type clean all and hit enter. (This will erase all data and zero out the drive). Check every few hours to see if it is done. When it is done. Turn off computer by holding the power button. Now, turn the computer it should start the windows 7 installation disk, then install windows from there.
