This is a troll thread.
Dranseth, backup your personal vids, music, pics, bookmarks, and clean install windows.
do all of your windows updates, drivers
if you dont have a subscription to antivirus or firewall then use free comodo internet security. it will say premium but its free.

next time someone calls you about a scam make sure you record it for legal purposes.

Had this many times before and my usual reaction is if they say "your on xp right" i say nope i run windows 95 and if they ask what OS i run i say something like i'm running BeOS.

The only good thing that happened was running a step ahead of the guy on the phone by saying "So you want me to open the cmd prompt window"..etc and he was a bit confused then i told him i am MCDST qualified (which i am) so he isn't going to fool me.

Had one guy phone 3 times wondering why i had hung up on him and then trying to get me to believe he was legit.

From doing a little digging into AMMYY admin it looks like legitimate free remote desktop software. The question being was AMMYY admin actually what the scammers had your mother install, who knows. As others have said the threats seem mostly unfounded as purely a scare tactic. By saying he has your Computer ID he might be talking about the ID to access your computer with AMMYY admin: link. Was he able to remotely access the computer or did your Mom stop it before that happened? If he was able to access it I'd reformat just to be safe or run some software like Adaware Internet Security, Malwarebytes, or Microsoft Security Essentials.

I checked the history and it was indeed the legitimate AMMYY that she had run, and that was it. She ran it for ~3-5 seconds.

Does she remember if he copied any files to the hard drive because with remote desktop software you should be able to see what the remote person is doing on the screen? If nothing was copied to her hard drive there shouldn't be a problem, but to be safe just run one or all of the software programs I mentioned. According to their website, AMMYY admin does not install on your computer so I'm assuming it just runs from the downloaded file. Delete that downloaded file, if you Mom remembers where it is and try to find it if she doesn't. As long as AMMYY admin is not running the scammer shouldn't be able to access the computer. Make sure AMMYY admin didn't add itself to the Startup programs under the Start Menu and msconfig. For msconfig click Start, type msconfig into the search bar, and click the Startup tab. For the Start Menu folder click Start, All Programs, and look in the Startup folder for any AMMYY admin there.

I dunno. Boot in safe mode, scan via malwarebytes?
The only time MS will call you is if you called them first and then you got disconnected. This is especially true for tech support.
