Someone is spying on my laptop!

I think I know who it is an x of mine..I've just become aware that someone can send you a link and if you are dumb enough to open it, they will then have access to everything on your computer. My question is how do I get rid of them? Do I buy a new hard drive? Or a whole new laptop and create new passwords?

  • Take your laptop to a best buy and have them wipe it clean for you. Disconnect the internet from it for right now

  • If you reformat your computer, make sure you transfer everything you want to keep onto an external drive or you'll lose everything.
