Lets assume your system has been hacked. What steps would you undertake after the hacking attempt to recover your PC system? The article published on the Techtarget website tries to answer the question and presents a checklist of things to do after someone hacked into your system. Its more of a checklist for corporate networks than for individual computers but it would not hurt to take a look and probably get some new ideas that you did not think about in the first place.

We had to remove some of the links again since some of them have been removed from their sites in the meantime.
Advertising revenue is falling fast across the Internet, and independently-run sites like Ghacks are hit hardest by it. The advertising model in its current form is coming to an end, and we have to find other ways to continue operating this site.
We are committed to keeping our content free and independent, which means no paywalls, no sponsored posts, no annoying ad formats (video ads) or subscription fees.
