Windows 7: Grandma allowed Computer 350 Tech scammer to install junk.

4 Weeks Ago   #21

Windows 7 HP 64

If the computer is a OEM (Dell, HP, etc) it probably has a Factory recover.
Once you launch it (from Windows or from BIOS) it will format the C: partition and load an image from the Restore partition.
It won't take long and it will end as it came from.

Save the data on a USB flash disk or external disk.

To help us guide you, give us the brand and model of your grandmother's computer.
