SCAM ! ! ! !

You dont get your pc fixed but it will be used to distribute more malware. Your computer is compromised. Reinstall everything from scratch and I mean delete everything on your computer and start installing your windows again.

and please do not use Caps, it is considered yelling....

I also hope you did not allow them "Remote Access" to your computer????????. Very bad for you if you did!!!!!!!. Did you install any apps as advised by them???. :(

I hope you didn’t give them any card details? If you did then most likely they’ll be using it, I recommend cancelling the card & checking for unauthorised/unknown transactions.
If you gave them access to the PC your passwords & information may also be compromised along with the PC.

Can you access internet? If you can download Spybot Search And Destroy and run it, that may get rid of it.
