Alright now i know i sound crazy but i am so hacked i just purchased my dream machine for gaming and it was alot of pennies to pinch but i went to set it up was just going to use my hard drive from my older comp and use the windows also well long to short on that windows said no i bough cheap key off of internet for 8 bucks and things started to act a little weird so i went and got a full dvd version and now as crazy as it sound the dvd transfers the virus and ot seems as though my new rig is bitcoin mining and i have no rights on it and i have lost my email adress its just gone and no one can help i have paid out over 1000 bucks to local guys but nothing there so much more but really they thought i was nuts till they seen it to. And i beleive it may be a local atack as they can conect via wifi when the internet isunplugged and the files i have taken from them are for very old server stuff and i juat am at wites end they are in everything in my home i really am getting worried thanks in advance for anyone that can help and i know this is just crazy but its all so very real

There is NOTHING, AT ALL, PERIOD, even if I was senseless enough to believe even a portion of what I've read here from you two jokers, that could survive the complete removal of all partitions on the OS drive and reinstallation of Windows, AND, a reflash of your bios firmware.

And I'm absolutely not saying that I believe somebody was capable of maliciously replacing your bios firmware in order to control or compromise your system in the first place because we deal with every kind of possibility AND nutjob on the the entirety of the internet, plus most of us read in depth investigations into the kinds of infections and hardware vulnerabilities that either exist or are possible and I've never encountered ANYTHING that even remotely indicated something like that is an ongoing possibility.

Assuming, for the sake of argument only, that you are the one person in the world that this was ever successfully perpetrated against, there is no possible way for any malicious software to still exist anywhere on your machine if you flash the bios with a known good image from the manufacturers website, completely remove all the existing partitions on the target drive and reinstall windows. None. At ALL.

So that's what I'd recommend and if that fails to end your woes (And it probably wouldn't hurt to do this on every device connected to your network AND take some additional precautions along the lines of using a router with modern protections, good password schemes and either a physical or software firewall enabled) then you either have a split personality that is installing malicious software while in control or you are simply imagining the whole scenario and it's entirely up to your imagination.

ALSO, in the future, do us ALL the favor and courtesy of posting in paragraphs instead of gigantic run on sentences that result in unreadable walls of text. It's rather obnoxious doing that and whether you're using a phone or not to post is no excuse. I send texts and post messages by phone all the time and can take the time to break them up into paragraphs, as do others, so you can do the same if you want people to extend the courtesy of an answer to any future replies or posts.
 
Time to change all network settings (admin password, wifi passwords) and a clean, full install of Windows with a clean ISO downloaded directly from Microsoft. Do you also have questionably sourced games on this rig?

If you have more than one system on this network, you should also scan them for malware/viruses immediately.

No. Sorry moderator but you're wrong. I lost my ProBook to a malicious BIOS update myself. It was done via network sniffing and remote desktop sharing.

You need a GOOD router with SECURE network settings to even have a shot at fighting this. What kind of router do you have now? The only reason I believe you is because I was attacked by a professional, targeted attack... and yeah, everyone is going to think you're nuts until they end up getting attacked themselves after connecting to your network. My boyfriend watched his BIOS go up in smoke within minutes of connecting to my network. My roommate wouldn't let me do anything with the network, and it took me moving somewhere else where I would have full network control to finally get anywhere with it (I'm an ex system admin, so I had a better chance than most people at figuring out what was happening and how to protect against it).

The settings you need: a secure admin password utilizing a mix of upper and lowercase, numbers and symbols, as well as a secure wpa2 password doing the same, and mac address filtering with a whitelist of only your devices being allowed on the network, no UPnP allowed, no WPS allowed either. No open ports, no port triggering either. Don't use a router your ISP supplies but get a GOOD router like Netgear or Linksys and bridge out your ISPs router. Then do a fresh system install on all your devices on your network. Change ALL your passwords to secure passwords as I described. ALL OF THEM. Install a software firewall on ALL of your devices as well, and use a VPN on your cellphones. I am not even kidding about the cellphones. Also, don't use any email on your cellphones - disable it entirely. Enable two factor authentication on every account you can enable it on. Only enable data on your cellphones while you're actively using it.

This covers all the loopholes they can use to get in. Good luck. After about a month you can start relaxing more but be more careful from now on. There is a LOT of money to be made off piggybacking off computer and cellphone users right now and most folks don't keep their devices or accounts very secure by default.
