The answer is in reply 1.
Very simply, most likely yes. A "hacker" that you have invited to your computer pretty much has access.

Cuddling?
No, I think the feeling is you are crying wolf.

Windows 10,Windows Firewall,Firefox w/Adblock.

Hi Scan,

What does wwdc say on your computer if you have installed that tool download from here: http://www.firewallleaktester.com/wwdc.htm

See a pic: http://www.firewallleaktester.com/images_site/wwdc.jpg

Interesting to see where the evil hacker could have rattled your hinges....

@polonus

The wwdc tool is no longer available.

Welcome,

http://www.firewallleaktester.com will not be available for a few months from now primarily due to the money it costs me each month (more than 40Euro).

Just Ran it had me backdoored DCOM and Locator.
I disabled some services thought.

the hacker was AND Still Remotely Editing my Registery and He is Even Trying to Install a Program Named VMWARE Player (I installed that program before but then uninstalled causing the trouble) using The Registry.
VMWARE allowing to Remotely Connect to another computer and use its Resources and Share it with you contains serious vulnabrties such as Firewall allowing any one to access or Take over some files... it was Installed once again as i saw in Event Viewer so I guess that Explains alot how ever i think its Registry Installed and not in the Directory.
I had DHCP Attacks for some reasons (I think) aka internet losing Conviencty all sudden.
Probably just one of those idiots who are doing identity Theft or trying to take over my IP

any ways thanks pol...
i will format my computer

BUT i hate to be annoying but if My Router has a Firewall and Removing Remote Desktop connection On Router ...SSHL...Etc
and disabling Remote assistance , Could I be safe from outside network access?

in other words am I safe behind the Router?

Most routers have only a one-way firewall providing only inbound protection unless the router specifically states that it has a 2-way firewall. Two-way firewalls provides both inbound and outbound protection.

Some will tell you that you do not need outbound protection when you are behind a router. But without outbound protection, your computer is vulnerable to malware, or even non-malware, that can call home to install malware on your computer that can cause you too many problems. As has been noted by many examples on this forum, not all malware comes from the internet. These can come from cd's, dvd's, usb drives, etc.

So, outbound protection is surely needed and most routers do not have this.

Honestly, it took me for a while to figure out what this thread is about.  If you are talking of home network security, about which I hope I'm right, I recommend to read this thread.
