staying safe after untrustworthy session
« on: January 04, 2017, 10:33:26 AM »
Hello, I have some problems with updating my graphic card drivers and I met one dude on some pc forum who said he has some idea how to help me, so I gave him my teamviewer id and password. We haven't solved anything yet, but it looked like he was really trying to help me. Anyway, he was doing a lot of things with my pc (messing with registry, command prompt etc.) and he was doing it really fast I couldn't catch everything what he did. For 5 minutes I even had to go the toilet so I left him alone with my pc. I know it was a bad idea and now I worry about losing my data. I dont worry about files on my pc, I worry about my logged accounts on chrome, firefox etc. so I want to be sure I didnt put my accounts under some potentional danger.
Here are the circumstances under which the session happend:
-I logged out of my windows account and logged in to my brothers acount (he's not using it very much so there werent any logged accounts on chrome or firefox on his windows account, at least I hope so)
-I allowed him only to see my desktop and control my computer (first 2 settings) every other setting was disabled (transfer files and so)

This is what I have done so far:
-cheched chrome, firefox, ie downloads - only some files which I believe have something to do with my drivers, nothing else

I don't know if its possible to get my chrome and firefox passwords through brothers windows account, but I want to be sure they're safe. You know some accounts (for example bank accounts) you just can't lose.

So I would like to know if what I did is enough or if I should also change my passwords, run malware or registry check or something else. Thanks.
