A hacker has gained access to my pc at home through teamviewer. He seems to be AFK but I can not possibly afford to not have access to it either. Which is teh quickest installing VNC out there as I'm unable to change the password of TV remotely?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
I was looking for a duplicate question and was suprised to find there's no penultimate "What's the best remote access software" question to link. As for your question:
Those are the ones I can think of, though I've only used the first four. The fourth I've only ever used in a LAN environment, so not sure of it's ability on the open web.
I would suggest, for a quick fix, Ammyy. All that needs to happen is run it on both computers (I'd suggest having it run on your local computer before you even get into the remote computer), copy the remote's ID into the local computer, and 'accept' the connection on the remote. Then get rid of teamviewer. It shouldn't take more than a minute (with decent internet connection).
However, Ammyy is (to my knwoledge) not a permanent solution for this. You should be able to install a different, permanent, solution with Ammyy however. Logmein would be my suggestion to install after that. After that, log in through Logmein, exit out of Ammyy, and now you have access without teamviewer on a permanent basis.
Good luck with your issues, but really the best course of action is to disable the computer until you can physically get home and can clean it up. (Or maybe change the password if it's 'hacker' you know.)

You could always remotely shut the computer off and deal with TeamViewer when you get home (assuming, of course, that there's some form of remote administrative access that you do have). Then, when you get home, you can unplug the computer from the network while you deal with the issue.
