I have been hacked for months and I dont know what to do to keep them out. I am not a expert on the computer but I get what I need done, but I was totally unaware that what has happened to me is possible. I got Kevin's book "Hacking for Dummies" to try & learn some of the things I see. I am no match for these hackers and it is making me a nervous wreck. They hijacked my desktop and a laptop. I got a smartphone beginning of Dec to help me get to internet and I have had to factory reset it 3 times. I take care of my 91 yr old mother and need the computer to research treatments for her. My question is HOW TO I KEEP THEM OUT! Got a new basic computer 6 weeks ago and there are back. I need step by step instructions if you have a solution because being a caregiver takes every minute of the day. I have a modem/router furnished by my provider that is for internet and phone...I read this probably needs to be changed but I am so busy i'm afraid I will screw it up. I dont know how to close the ports or which ones to close. I got some of the equipment that was suggested by Kevin but because of my time crunch I dont know how to set them up to do what is needed. PLEASE can you help me! My OS is windows 7.
