Customer Question

I am unable to logon with my startup password.
JA: Have you tried having password ***** directions emailed to you?
Customer: no
JA: Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: no... I got inso this situation when I tried to click on a Facebook image of the startrek hero, captain kirk. Beneath the photo was a caption that indicated kirk had died recently. I was in disbelief so I clicked the image of his face and i immediately was faced with a new window which stated that my computer had been compromised.
JA: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I couldn't do anything further with my computer except to call a so called microsoft certified technician numer.. I did this and eventually someone came online and gave me instructions + took control of my computer remotely. He then seemed to remove the malware.

I am using a Surface 3 now. I gave my ASUS to a tech support desk until tomorrow. They phoned me an hour ago to say that they could not get into my ASUS to enter a new password ***** even to bring up a desktop screen.
