Personal opinion only....
The only sure-fire way is to re-install , change e-mil address, change password.
You don't know what they had done when they remotely accessed your computer.
If your Win 7 is an OEM version ( it came pre-installed when you bought the computer ), you can use your recovery disc, if you had made one. Or, access to the built-in recovery partition.
Either way, you will lose all your files, installed programs etc etc. So you'll need to back them to an external hard drive before you proceed with the System Recovery.
If your Win 7 is a retail version, ( you bought the OS separately from a retail computer store), you have a box with an Installation disc and the product key.
Use the disc to do complete clean install.
Again, backup your files etc first.
