Hackers have removed my ability to download links for PC Matic and Avast plus they removed them both from my PC and using McFee software to lock me out from any administrative changes. All setting reset seconds after changed.  Completely modified office and removes apps and programs.  A unknown driver and two devices which are locked appear when I attempt to fix the issues.  The error message is I need elevated privileges.  I reset a week ago and now factory reset is impossible and they locked by backup drive
