My computer is being hack again?

I'm using my phone while typing this, because someone keeps hacking my computer again! I already downloaded something that deletes viruses but I don't know if he can still hack me? It says I have no cookies or threats, so can he still hack my computer? What can I do? Is calling the police an option?

    Hackers get in due to your computer having a weak or non-existent firewall. Without a firewall, you can be hacked over and over again. I would recommend that you do the following:

    Turn off your wireless and remove any ethernet cable used for the internet. Enabled Windows Firewall

    Locate another computer or device and download a firewall. I would recommend ZoneAlarm. (Link 1)

    Transfer firewall to your system and install it. After install and initial configuration, turn back on your wireless and/or insert back in the ethernet cable. You should now be able to surf without getting hacked. It wouldn't hurt to get an anti-spyware and anti-malware software though. I'd Recommend Spybot Search and Destroy and Malwarebytes respectively.
