How do I keep hackers away?
It’s doubtful that a bunch of hackers ganged up on you. What likely happened is you got a virus. This virus made opened some holes in your operating system so that it could talk back and forth with “home base” and from there it initiated downloads of other malware to completely lock up your system. This method is used to confuse you while they’re going through your data or using your system to send emails. Your best bet is to start over with a clean install and a good security plan that includes anti virus and spyware scanning. Don’t go to suspect websites or open any emails that may be suspect.
