    Oh!!! A start up password. It sounds like something got changed in your BIOS security, I'm not sure what it's called. @Barman58, you know what I mean don't you.
    Perhaps you can better explain.

    Hi,

    You have fallen victim to a tech support scam.

    If those 985 numbers in reply #15 and reply #5 are YOUR number(s), I suggest editing your posts to remove that information from your public forum posts. It's a very bad idea to post such sensitive personal information in a public place.

    Also:

    Did you give out credit card or other payment information?

    Did you give anyone remote access to your computer?

    If I was asked to fix that PC I would Boot from my install media, delete all partitions, and install windows to the unallocated space. Who knows what has been done/installed on that PC. Even if you manage to get back in, I wouldn't trust doing anything online with it. It almost certainly has a key logger on it. I would change all your online passwords, from a different PC, especially bank site logins.
