...that is exactly how you UNsecure your PC. Anyone here could be anyone and do literally anything to your PC. Find someone you know in real life to have a look at it for you.

Nine times out of ten any security issue will come from the user rather than websites. Eg if someone calls you claiming to be from your bank saying you have a problem and wanting information, odds are it isn't your bank, and talking to them is exactly how you get a problem.

Unfortunately it's very hard to try to teach this mindset to someone; you need to be innately suspicious of everything and don't give any information or access to someone you do not know personally, and even then, check what they do and all account activity for some time afterwards.
