    well recently, I needed to download microsoft office but because I don't have the money to buy it, I searched for some ways to download it for free. There's this one way where i had to download a torrent that has the microsoft office 2016 in there and a KMSAuto Net for the activation of the software. So I followed all the instructions on how to do it but I got stuck on the part where I was going to activate the microsoft office through the KMSAuto Net. The "activation" button won't go through so I simply spammed it and I thought it would go through. But it didn't, and after I did that, my computer started to act up. VERY LAGGY as if it's like a virus has entered my computer. So I couldn't stand the 'slowness' of my computer so I decided to reformat it. So I reformatted it but it didn't change. I thought the virus was still there but I tried to download an anti virus but no threats have been detected. Is my computer forever broken now? Did I somehow corrupted it system when I spammed the 'activation' button on the KMSAuto Net? Please helpppp. Thank you.

    If you formatted the hard drive and did a clean reinstall of the Windows operating system, all viruses and other infections would be wiped out.

    We don't provide help with a pirated non-genuine copy of Microsoft Office 2016 or any other software.

    Well, I briefly searched about the KMSAuto Net and it says that it's a hacking tool. Is it possible that my computer might be hacked or something? sorry if i sound stupid, i'm not really that knowledgable when it comes to computers.

    Please run the MGA Diagnostic Tool and post back the report it creates:
    • Download MGADiag to your desktop.
    • Double-click on MGADiag.exe to launch the program
    • Click "Continue"
    • Ensure that the "Windows" tab is selected (it should be by default).
    • Click the "Copy" button to copy the MGA Diagnostic Report to the Windows clipboard.
    • Paste the MGA Diagnostic Report back here in your next reply.
