Need Help Recovering From Remote Access - Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Help - BleepingComputer


  My Wife's Step Dad, sadly got fooled with a remote hack, they pretended to be from Amazon.

He let them take over his pc, he is running Windows 10. He saw script coming up on his screen.

To cut a long story short, he managed to hang up before any money was taken, police were phoned etc..

Now he is rightly scared to turn on his pc.

I suggested I could restore his Windows or even factory restore his pc, but he is very paranoid (maybe rightly so)

I suggested I could install a new harddrive, but then I have been reading up on bios attacks.

My question is this:

Could a hacker or scammer with remote access infect the bios? If I put in a new harddrive I know the bios will infect the new drive as well.

Any suggestions or hopefully reassurance will be greatly appreciated.
