I have Win 7 x64 and originally set up and used one account that was an Admin account, thinking that I had all rights and priveleges as I should have, being the sole user.
Then I started noticing strange things like I was unable to change my Network Sharing to Off. I would select that option only to have it back On.
To my horror, I then realized that my computer had been hacked and a Default account had ALL rights and privileges and limited my account!
I called a computer specialist that reset my computer back to the original settings and am starting over.
This time I have two accounts - an admin and regular account. I only work in the regular account now.
When I log in as an Admin to check up on things, I am am once again unable to disable network sharing even though I have a Homegroup.
Why is this? How can I know if a hacker has taken over that account?
