    My wife received such email yesterday 9/10/15 and clicked on it to see what it was about, now her laptop seems to have a mind of its own and the mouse arrow goes everywhere. Apparently she is under REMOTE access of some sort. How do we get rid of this or should she just get another computer?

      No, you do not need to get another computer.

      A phishing scam doesn't infect someone's computer with a virus or malware, so she may have downloaded a malicious computer program. Please do a full scan of the computer with the anti-virus software installed on it. Also, have a computer savvy friend or family member take a look at your computer, to make sure there is nothing malicious on it, even after scanning it.
