Hello, first of all I'll start by saying this.
A few months ago my world of warcraft was hacked (still unable to get it back). I sent the person who hacked my gmail a email, which at that time didn't know that he can trace my ip. About 3 month ago I brought a new computer and which came with Norton anti-virus. I did a virus scan last month with norton and it picked up hacktool.proxy and quarintied it, I then downloaded Malware Bytes updated it and do a scan every 3 days only a trojan bho popped up and it malwarebytes killed it. I have had two blue screens of death (I heard thats what it was called. happen to me one where is today. I was playing a game, it came up crashed and restarted my computer and i did another scan with malware bytes nothing popped up.

on windows defender history, this shows

Not Yet Classified

I scanned my game and nothing popped up, also in norton history..
Unauthorized access blocked (allocate virtual memory) and heaps of
An intrusion by was blocked, it started with happening twice a week, now today when i got the blue screen of death, the intrusion happened like 10 times and all of them were blocked.
Today i also got a email from WOWACCOUNTADMIN, which looked very fishy so i deleted it, it happened an hour after the blue screen of death.

Sorry if this was in the wrong section >.>.
Is there anyway I can prevent this? I don't mind reformatting my computer not too many important things. And i don't want my computer to be hacked, because my dad uses it for his power point presentations at his job.

Download and install ccleaner, it doesnt protect you from being hacked but will clean up some bad stuff that you may have on your computer. I normally run it 2 or 3 times a day because its really fast scaning and deleting rubbish that you may have.

Also, i really hate norton, i use free avg, and i think you should do the same. You should also avoid e-mailing back, principally if they're hackers. Keep malwarebytes, but i think you should install spybot, just for a few months and run it everytime after you finish using the internet.

I never run all at the same time, it may not do the scans properly. Get a firewall if you havent got one.


I recommend using Zone Alert for your firewall.

Heard of Zone Alarm, but not Zone Alert.
