Hi. I’m a 17 year old kid, I built my gaming pc last year. I was filling out my Common App for college and when I got to the text box section some one took control of my computer and typed in my two frequently used passwords for every single account that I have(besides the common app one, it had to be longer and have different characters n stuff) so what I did was turned off my computer. Unplugged the internet, and ran Malwarebytes and it came up with nothing. So I got back on the internet and got to the same page of the common app and boom, as if on que my computer types in “differentiation in calculus” which was my last search on the web in my search history. The main reason why I am so scared is because the Common App has all of my information in it including my SS, and all of my family’s information, my transcript and where I am it in every part of my day. And if whatever this is can type on my computer and know the two passwords I have that no one else knows and I don’t have written down anywhere than I’m sure it HS all this information too. Today I started doing government homework on the computer and I have video footage of me not touching the keyboard and it typing in the last work and numbers of one of my pass words? Sorry for the grammar but it is late at night and I’m freaking out. I assume it is malware or some type of viruses but I don’t know much about that stuff. I know more about the hardware aspect of computers. So will reformatting the drive work? Like clearing everything? Should I go to the police? Or a tech support near me? I need help and suggestions. Thanks

I don't suspect you have a keylogger or anything else from the scans you have run. It really sounds more like cached form data that was just filled back into the fields they are associated with.

If you are still uncertain, save your files to a removable storage device and re-install Windows. Thoroughly scan your files again, before copying back to your fresh install of Windows.

What browser are you using? Does this behavior happen with specific browsers or websites? Could this just be saved form data (why I am asking about behavior in alternate browsers)?

Have you cleared your browser caches/temp files/history?

What anti-virus application, in addition to Malwarebytes, are you using?

I am using Microsoft edge and so far it has happened on any website where there is a text box, so in logins, google doc, and the Common App. Yes I have cleared cashe and history, I am still having the same problem. Also I just us the free version of Malware Bytes
Thanks

The free version of MWB is not an anti-virus program. Windows ships with its own anti-virus. At a minimum, you should be using that as well.

Try another browser, like Firefox or Chrome. You should also try scanning with another tool, to put your mind at ease. One like this:

I ran the eset program and it said that it deleted a Trojan virus from this computer. Is that my only problem? Is there anything I can to about the information I already have?

Yes. I am using google chrome now. While I was choosing a browser I saw something called chromium as an alternative browser. Is this anything to be worried of? And also I removed a Trojan virus through eset. Is the it? Should there be anything else I shouldn’t of be worried about and I changed all my passwords but is there anything I can do about my information being out there now?

Actually if you suspect you are hacked which is unlikely because most of noob hackers are just trying stupid ways, and specific pattern yours in the other hand seems you lost u r data and the cjashed one is another yet. U wont recognise it even if he is done with it unless u know u r device right for he will be using ur device resources and u will see some performance issues and back ground app strange activity.
To let you know that hacking is not the same as having a virus or something else.
Solution is as follows :
1-go get the trial version of norton or bitdefender the Internet security version.
2-run full scan.

I suggest you purchase an, "Internet Security Suite" all around protection program. For example, I have been using "Viper Internet Security Suite" for more than 15 years and have never had an issue. Never! You can download it online at, "https://www.vipre.com/products/home-protection/," if you wish. I even have the app on my Galaxy S8. Never had an issue! You will not find Viper Internet Security Suite in many, or any "Google reviews" or elsewhere, if you will, because the "other" security programs pay for their reviews. Viper does not. They rely upon customer satisfaction and I am attesting to that. I have no reason to want to change my internet security. None! Having said that, this is just a suggestion, based upon my personal experience with Viper. Wish you the best!
