I went to Symantecs web site for tech support on my virus product and they asked for remote access for my computer and I allowed it. Well it took them 2 hours to fix a 45 minute problem. The person wasnt paying attention to me and I did most of the work fixing my problem and so when the company sent out the survey on tech support I complained and gave out the persons name. Ever since then My computer has lost the cd rom in which i finally got back and then it lost the scanner and I am working on recovering its drivers and such. Now when I email people it take forever to type a line and every time i turn on MSN messenger I have to type in my info even after I have clicked save all information. I have attached my hijack log. and I am aware of silentbug, i have it to watch my childrens activities online lolMore replies
Hello. This account is being used by two people: the PC owner and a neighbor who is trying to help. The PC owner had a cold call at the beginning of September which claimed to be able to tell that the PC owner was sending infected files. A week later, the neighbor heard about this and recognized this as a tech support scam. The neighbor was able to determine that the tech support scammer had installed the free version of AVG AntiVirus, but not much else.
The neighbor attempted to run a few free tools to find out if any malicious software was left behind, but due to problems with saving the logs or virus scanners apparently crashing, the neighbor and the PC owner never found any conclusive results for most of those. The neighbor was following some advice given on a different forum to the victim of a similar scam (link), so dds logs have already been created, but the neighbor would rather have someone who understands them take a look at them.
The neighbor also ran TDSSKiller, but set to Verify Driver Digital Signature and Detect TDLFS file system. No actions were taken to remove anything using this tool, but a TDSS file system was detected; we don't know what is on it, yet.
The scammers apparently used TeamViewer to access the PC owner's computer, and maybe LogMeIn Rescue. An empty folder was left for LogMeIn Rescue, but program files remained for TeamViewer. The neighbor copied... Read more

Boy do I feel stupid, I was having trouble with figuring out my new outlook email. I got frustrated looking online for information and called what I thought was a Microsoft tech help ctr. The person on the phone told me she would connect me with a tech. thru a chat window at chat123.us. I proceeded to follow prompts and began chat with the tech. the tech stated I was probably infected with third party spyware and my email was hacked.During the process the tech asked to check some things. she pulled up a command prompt window and started looking at my ip address, she also got my start-up window open. When done she said I was infected and showed me where. She said she could fix for a fee. Already suspicious I declined and logged off. I ran my avira free antivirus and it came up clean and my computer seems to be ok but I fear I may have compromized my system. What now?
Thank you, Jim

Hello. We posted in the Am I Infected? forum previously in this topic. To recap, there are two people using this account, the PC owner and a neighbor helping out. The PC owner gave remote access to someone running a tech support scam, the neighbor has been trying to do some scans to figure out what (if any) malicious software may have been left behind and remove it. One of the performed scans was with TDSSKiller and after we posted the log we were directed to make a topic here. Logs are still posted in the other topic, but DDS logs were created previously which have not been posted. We also just ran DDS again, to give you fresher logs to look at, should that make a difference after running SUPERAntiSpyware. SUPERAntiSpyware found only found tracking cookies, which have been removed.
GMER was also suggested by the previous helper, but we have been unable to reach the website to download it, either on the owner's PC or on the neighbor's. We did not run Malwarebytes AntiMalware a 3rd time (the 2nd time had no detections, the 1st time had maybe 2, but the log wasn't saved before the neighbor could view it). The other scans which have been attempted were with Microsoft Security Essentials (which found nothing) and an online ESET scan which crashed before its results could be viewed.
Here is the newest set of DDS logs.

My father saw a pop-up that said his computer had an error and was infected with malware. The pop-up had a phone number to call. He talked to someone who said he was a certified Microsoft technician and got my dad scared about the Zeus virus. My dad gave him access to his computer and they did a remote session.
The person did not ask for a credit card number, he asked to be mailed a check but wasn't too worried about getting paid.
I know that my dad should not have done what he did But now I'm trying to clean the computer from what may be compromised. I am currently running SpyHunter and it has already found 217 threats detected. It looks like the scary one is HawkEye keylogger and there is also Conduit Search/Toolbar and FindYourMaps Toolbar. I'm 70% done.
I'd love to know what to do next and if someone could please walk me through all the things I need to make sure and take care of to keep my dad safe. Thank you for your help and support!
I got a pop up that was loud and wouldn't let me close it saying, "your computer has been infected call Microsoft" and I did because I turned it off and it was still yelling st me when I turned it back on. I gave the tech remote access and he said I had a tiny something trojan virus. Well I didn't fall for paying, got off the phone, held power button down and turned computer off. Am able to use it fine now with no more warning but am I safe after giving the remote access? I was on the phone for about 30 mins while he was going around to different areas in my computer telling me what all of the "problems" were.
It wasn't Microsoft, it was a scam. I suggest you have a look here and create a new post asking for assistance to ensure your computer has not been compromised .1 more replies
I have a 2003 server located in a main office, and have 2 external XP sites that log into the server via Remote Desktop/term serv to access one rarely used application(hence the use of RD & not a VPN)
My problem is this...User in location A, has a system with both a network printer and a LPT printer. Both can print from within the application via RD with no worries. User in location B however, can do everything else ok but cannot print to either a LPT printer or a network printer from within the app. I have tried logging in with User A's login at location B and still have the same issue. Which I assume means it is not a group policy or security setting on the server, rather an issue with the actual PC at location B?? I have checked the local resources tab in the intial Remote Desktop connection screen, and the "use local printer" option is checked. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

What version of Windows 7 is installed on your computer?
ok i have windows 7 home premium running on an HP laptop, and Vista home premium running on a dell desktop. I keep trying to run the remote desktop connection to setup the laptop to remotely log on to my desktop when i am out of tow working, but it wont connect. i have the laptop with win7 hp set to auto detect RD server gateway, and the desktop with vista hp to auto detect TS server gateway??? Can someone give me a step by step method to complete this task???
Unfortunately, the home versions do not support being an RD host. They can only connect to a machine running Professional or higher.
There is good news, however! There are free programs you can use instead. Try Teamviewer.

Updated PCs running Trend Micro's Antivirus on Windows can be hijacked, infected with malware, or wiped clean by any website, thanks to a vulnerability in the security software.
The design blunders were discovered by Google Project Zero bod Tavis Ormandy. A patch is now available to address the remote-code execution flaw, so Trend Micro users should update their software as soon as possible.
Ormandy, who has been auditing widely used security packages, analyzed a component in Trend's AV software dubbed the Password Manager. He found that multiple HTTP RPC ports for handling API requests were accessible.
"It took about 30 seconds to spot one that permits arbitrary command execution, openUrlInDefaultBrowser, which eventually maps to ShellExecute()," he wrote in a bug report to Trend.
This means that any webpage visited by a victim could run a script that uses Trend Micro's AV to run commands directly on the machine – such as RD C:\ /S /Q to wipe the system drive, or commands to download and install malware. As another example, this code uninstalls Trend Micro's security software on a PC without the owner's knowledge or consent.
The software has been patched via an update but I am surprised Trend Micro let this get through.
Not surprised of this at all. Hell, they don't even include signature based detections for Cryptoware if you're not on the latest version of their product and they don't warn you at all about it. It's when you directly ask them that they finally answer. Seriously, TrendMicro isn't worth using at all, at home like at work.2 more replies
hey guys i need help with 2 problems.
My Internet Navigator Keyboard's F Keys are set on default to do certain things like : new;reply;forward;send;undo;redo;print;save.. ect. I can modify these keys. For example modifying F1 to My Documents. The problem is I can't modify the key F1 to F1. When I play games to take a screenshot is normally F5. But when i press F5 it goes to My Music..
In the Keystroke section I can't put and F key. When I press F1 nothing happens.
And my other problem is with my Remote Wonder II that came with my ATI x800 All-in-Wonder. The remote wonder's software doesn't load on start up and DOES NOT show on system tray(bottom right hand corner). So I cant use my remote. Even if i launch the remote wonder program I cannot use the remote wonder because it still doesn't show on my system tray.
I haven't used it myself but it sounds good.
The title says it all! Basically I have a comp running XP pro and I want to be able to work locally on one user account, with some kind of remote access server running on another XP user account so that the remote account and the local account can be used simultaniously.

I have a home network of 4 Win 7 computers which I leave running when I'm away from home to provide data to my website, among other things. In the past, I've been using Remote Desktop to access my home computers. It works very well, but it's always a challenge getting everything set up to work right before I go. I was wondering if others who have used Remote Desktop as well as other means of remote access would care to share their experience and express a preference, if any.

I asked a question in another thread wanting to know if there were any good free alternatives to programs PCAnywhere or GoToMyPC. Boy did I ever get more than I expected in TeamViewer that EAFiedler suggested.
Now I have a technical question about how TeamViewer works. It connects to remote systems across the internet not by an IP number that I enter but rather by an arbitrary nine-digit number assigned to the system when the program is set up. It connects so quickly that I know it cannot be scanning every IP address on the 'net looking for a TeamViewer connection at every one of them. So, I have deduced that there must be a server out there somewhere that stores TeamViewer information.
Does anyone know enough about this to confirm this and/or explain it to me somewhat?
Next question: What about security? Are there any security issues I should be concerned about, other than the obvious, of course?

Weeks ago I set this up using crossover cable, 2 LAN cards on PC1 and 1LAN card on PC2. They are in the same workgroup.
I had posted a thread for help, can't seem to find it now, so posting again. Sorry.
Everything works great except PC1 can't access PC2, permission denied! both are XP SP2. PC2 can see the PC1 shared files, can print from PC1 printer, use the internet etc. PC1 (my gaming rig and the master PC) cannot access my old computer, where I left all my music files. At first I thought it was just a few tweaks in Windows and I'd solve it. But after several hours on PC2 trying everything I could think of, I'm stumped!! :knock:
I'm Admin on both PCs, I've set shared folders on both. PC1 can see PC2 icon in My Network Places, but when try to access get "permission denied, contact your IT admin" Of course that's me. So I've contacted me and me can figure out how this works!
create a user accoutn on pc2(right click my computer, manage, users and groups) using the login name and password you use on PC1 and give full admin rights make sure both in same workgroup, share all the neccary resources on pc2 and you should be fine
I have a total of six computers on my home network. Four (two wired, two wireless) run XP, two (both wired) run Win 7. I have a new D-link DIR615 router replacing an older Linksys with which I had the same problems.
All of the XP machines connect with each other and share files to all drives perfectly. All six machines connect and share files with the secondary drives but NOT the C drives of the Win 7 machines. I can't get the Win 7 machines to see each other in the homegroup.
Each 7 machine says that it's joined to a homegroup, but that there's no other computer in the homegroup. Both are on.
Passwords are the same and I have password access disabled anyway.
All permissions I can find are enabled.
Network discovery is enabled.
All sharing is enabled, including all settings I could find for the C drives of the Win 7 machines.
One thing I found is that IPv6 shows "No internet connectivity" on both 7 machines. IPv4 shows internet connectivity. I really don't know what that means.
I've tried everything I've found on every tutorial I've found and can't make this work. Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Homegroups is not made to work in a mixed Op system network, it's only made to function correctly with all Windows 7 machines. You need to set up a Workgroup for a mixed Op system network.
IPv6 only connects on the LAN and is used locally for the Homegroup network. That is why it says disconnected which is in reference to the WAN.
You should leave the Homegroup on all of the Windows 7 machines and create a Workgroup.

A search for that error message came up with a few answers on on Google, though (predictably) zero on MS. At least you can know that you are not alone.
You might go and make sure you have the "right" version of MDAC. (There are many to choose from, god bless 'em.)
Several of the other sites mention using 2.5SP1 to resolve the problem, for what it's worth. I'd just keep trying MDAC versions until something clicks.
Or wait for someone who's seen this baby before to come around.

Hi,Perhaps someone might be able to help. I am running Windows Vista. My wife uses IE, whilst I use Firefox. We've had no problems for several months. Recently, IE has started to give her some issues with some error that says IE is no longer working and resets itself, much to her displeasure. On the PC I use Firefox and have never had any issues. Mainly, I use a laptop hooked up to our secure wireless network, and again, no issues (outside of her IE problem, which I have tried to resolve).Today, she says that the machine was running slow, and couldnt access several websites that we normally view all the time. One of which is a local newspaper (www.brisbanetimes.com.au) where it would time out. She said other sites did it as well, but not all of them.I had a look when I got home, and did have this problem. The weird thing is that it was also affecting my laptop over the wireless, so perhaps not a system error?Anyway, I ran a slew of programs.. AdAware which found some spyware which was removed. Spybot found nothing, AVG found some spyware, Bit Defender found nothing, and Stinger found nothing.Websites still dont work.Any suggestions?

I'm trying to get a wireless router working for friends. I got it to work yesterday, but now it is no longer working.
Fiber optic connection, HAG
Conitech wireless router access point (can find very little info on this)
PC XP pro sp3
If I connect my computer to the HAG, it, of course, works fine.
Yesterday, I hit the reset button on the back of the conitech router (because they didn't have the password) and went through the setup wizard, connecting my HAG to the WAN port on the router and it worked fine, both connecting via wireless and with a cable to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Today it is no longer working. Both wireless and LAN show it is connected but I can't access the internet.
Any ideas on this? I'm guessing you'll need me to post ipconfig /all but I'm not sure if I should do it with my computer connected to the HAG and working, or connected to the conitech router. Let me know and I will paste.

i've recently got broadband (bt) installed. my modem is a zyxel prestige 623. when it's installed either by ethernet or usb i can acces internet fine. the prob is i can't when i try and hit the net through the modem via a 3com oc wireless dsl router. i can setup the wireless router fine (i can see my/other pcs in the network accessing it etc etc). some info: my connection to the isp is pppoe. i've set up the ip address of the modem at 192.168.1.24 (previously was 192.168.1.1), the wireless router is 192.168.1.1 both have dhcp enabled. i heard something about havin to use a cross over patch cable between the router and modem. not sure if this is true but i've tried with with both types of patch cable to no avail. can't find anywhere to set default gateway on router if i even need to. is there any settings that spring to mind when setting up this sort of config?????????
If you have the modem in router mode then:
Plug the modem into one of the local ports of the router.
Only enable the DHCP server on the modem.
If the modem is in bridge mode then set up the DSL connection in the router WAN configuration. Enable DHCP on the router.

I want to access my work data remotely.
My work is on ADSL with 4 computers on a workgroup. DHCP server automatic 192.168.0.100 (PC1) ... 192.168.0.103 (PC4)
My home setup is almost exactly the same, with a different workgroup name and different computer names.
I have managed to remotely connect over the workgroup by entering the PC name at home and of the ip address assigned by my router (192.168.x.y). I was wondering if I could connect from one computer on my home network to another one over the internet back to the same network by entering an IP address not of the 192.168.0.x
Now I realise this is probably not possible because I am trying to contact the same IP address provided by my ISP and it is probably asking for a connection while it is trying to recieve one. So I guess I am interested in how I can connect from one computer at home to a particular computer at work with the above setups.
Almost right.... What you need to do is the following.
Take your PC's and assign Static IP's (you'll see why in the next steps)
Go to your Router and forward port 3389 to the PC you want to remote control into.
Then you connect to your PC using your WAN IP or if you have a dynamic WAN IP you may want to use something like dyndns.com to give you a stable connection method.
If you want to put more machines to be remote controlled remotely do the following -
Take your PC's and assign Static IP's (different last octet from the one above)
Also on the specific PC edit the registry and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\PortNumber edit it and change the port from 3389 to another port.
Go to your Router and forward the port you picked in the last step to the PC's IP that you just hardcoded (different from the first one).
In order to connect from the outside the LAN your on has to have those specific ports open. Then to connect into The 3389 PC you just type in your WAN IP or your dns name. If you want to connect into any of the others you type in your WAN IPort.
X.X.X.X - in your remote desktop box will give you your first PC
X.X.X.X:3390 - would give you your second box
and so fourth.

I have recently stopped seeing my boyfriend of four years. Somehow he knows everything I am doing. He lives 315 miles from me. I joined a dating site - he showed up on that same site as a match. I figured out how to block him from that site, but I do believe he reads everything on this computer. He is a project manager for the installation of hundreds of computers all over the world. He works from home and I believe he has several servers in his home office along with four or five computers. I am sure he is seeing everything I am typing right now. He is stalking me. I am pretty innocent and naive when it comes to computers and really need help.
When I am on the dating site I joined, if I click on a profile I may find interesting, my computer screen dulls and I get the message that the internet is not working. The only reason I find this odd is because when I am on my banking site, craigslist, facebook, etc. that does not happen. It only happens when I am on the dating site.
He gave me this computer. I have no ide... Read more

Does remote access work across the internet , and is it available in XP Home?
If so, how do I set it up?
Thanks in advance for any help.
The last time I read about Win XP, only Win XP Pro has the Remote Access feature, no t Win XP Home.
I am not sure if I am in the right category or not for this question...but I would like to know about setting up other PCs so that I can remotely access them when I am away and help fix problems.
My parents drive me completely batty with their constant over the phone computer questions. It would make my life so much easier if I was able to just tap into their machine and show them what they want to know, or to check and see what the problem is. But I am not really at all familiar with how I can go about doing that...
My own personal PC is running windows 7 pro, and their PCs are running Windows Xp pro, Vista home premium, and windows 7 pro. (three different PCs) Their computers are not on any domains, just a simple basic home network for internet purposes. Nothing fancy.
How difficult or easy would it be for me to set this up? I generally turn off all avenues of remote access (like remote registry etc) so I know I would need to make the various services and such enabled again. I also figure that I may need to set up their router to allow such connections as well (right?) But beyond that, I am kind of clueless. I tried searching online, but a lot of the stuff I found talked about being on a domain, which is not applicable here.
Any help would be fabulous and much appreciated!!
You want to look into the MS built in feature called remote assistant. I don't have much experience with it but I know many people use it for exactly the scenario you're talking about.

Trying to understand how Remote hooks to a computer on the internet using either UltraVNC or Windows XP Remote Access.
If I have a home network with say 5 nodes using a cable modem and router, how do I address the computer to find form the outside world?
Understanding my ip address will be Dynamic for the leased time, my router/gateway having the generic 192.168.1.1 and the other computers 192.168.1.xxx.

Do you know the IP address of your cable modem?
I thought i had a hijacked computer and so i reformatted. a couple of days later, i found that i was not able to access my own firewall settings and that, removing my backup drive (no operating system) caused symantec corporate to fail (it was looking for files it couldnt find. this was strange, so i took out both of those drives and put in another and formatted and installed xp and norton corporate edition again. now i am wondering if there is a way for the guy who gave me the corporate edition to be on my computer, hiding data loggers and bypassing my settings by way of some remote administration (he is a GIS guy for a company and manages their server). maybe something else is happening, i dont know. I can put the other drives in at another time and run hijack and startup
I ran hijack this and startuplist on the current hard drive. Is there anything there to worry about?

I know there are many different ways to have remote access. Right now my remote offices access my unix server through telnet with an emulation software over a hardware vpn connection (two linksys vpn routers). Well, we upgraded our medical software to a windows version and I love it. But now we are ready for the full install. To access the program remotely I just need access to it's executible file through a mapped drive or such. The software manufacturer recomends using terminal server. But why can't I just set up my server (running server 2003 enterprise) as a vpn server and access from my two sattelite offices that way? Can anyone recommend a good tutorial on terminal server set-up? I have two remote offices with two workstations at one office and three workstations at the other. I just want to use the easiest method. Any input would be great.
Information on how to configure a 2003 VPN server can be found at:
Hi you guys. I have a quick question. I work for a company that uses QuickBooks Pro. They are thinking about the possibility of me working from my home, since I too have QB Pro. That sounds great, right? Well, there is a problem. Normally, I would back up the file to a CD, bring it home, work, and then carry it back to the office when I was there and restore it. That sounds good...but that won't work, if during that lapse that I am not in the office, the owner is working on QB too. Following me so far? I have looked into & worked a little bit with GoToMyPC - but that is $19.95 per month, and I am not sure if the owner would be willing to dish out a per month fee. I have also read a few other posts where UltraVNC is recommended. Furthermore, I did a search on my help & support and found that I have "Remote Desktop Connect" - what's that? Could that work? What are my options, so that when we discuss this, I know what I can and cannot do that will work for both of us. I like GoToMyPC, because I can work on their computer, and don't have to worry about saving to a CD and restoring - but again, that monthly cost.

I've been a member here for a while but have never posted so let me introduce myself. My name is Jerry but my friends just call me doc (an old nickname from nam),. So Hello!!!
Now for my question: Recently I've had a LOT of problems with people(or person) trying to hack or infect my pc. I just got another one my myriad of spyware-anti-virus tools picked it up, called "Graybird.? (i forgot the second part of the name although I'm sure sommeone will know what I'm talking about) anyway my anti-virus just picked up a riskware in my "System Volume" that was a reboot tool. I'm assuming that it's used to simply reinstall the malware as soon as you reboot your pc. Maybe I'm wrong as I'm a bit of a noob. Anyway, is how can I go about pinging to see if someone has gained access to my pc remotely? Or can I even do it at all? If not is there a way to find out or prevent the possibility of it happening at all in the future? I appreceiate any consideration anyone gives to reading my ranting and a possible answer to my post. Anyway nice to make everyones aquaintance and have a good one.
Well...there are anti-malware programs...and there are malware programs that masquerade as anti-malware programs .
Why don't you tell us the actual name and version of the program you used for this "notification"...and also tell us what programs are installed on your system for the purpose of finding/defeating malware of all sorts.
As for items in System Restore folders...it used to be a common suggestion for anyone using SR and attempting to rid themselves of known malware...to temporarily turn off SR when making the attempt (otherwise, the malware may merely reside in one of the folders (one for each partition) you mentioned.

My father-in-law lives miles away, and unfortunately is being charged a fortune by a company to simply install the latest version of Mozilla Firefox (he has paid them once, and now the new version is available they have told him he will need to uninstall the old version and install the new version, they tried to talk him through this on the phone (at peak rate) and did such a blinding job that it doesn't work at all now). I was wondering if there is anyway to access his pc remotely (I'm on Vista, he's on XP if that makes any difference), so that I can uninstall and download the newer version. Obviously, i have seen remote access in offices before, but wasn't sure if there was a way I could do this (obviously with his permisssion first)?
Again, apologies if this is in the wrong place and thank you in advance of any advice you may have.
You would need remote access software. It would have to be setup first. If your father in law can't, with support, uninstall and install software, this is something you will need to do personally onsite.
I appreciate any assistance out here...
My EX-computer tech had originally installed LOG ME IN remote access to ALL of my office computers and laptops. He was fired for stealing in December of 2009. I removed the LOG ME In feature from my hard drives in March, but never shut off remote access. A week ago I noticed a LOG ME In window was open on a laptop and have since seen a variety of dates/times on my events logs to ALL of my office computers showing that LOG ME IN has tried to open. This person had worked on our computers for a couple years, had all passwords, wireless etc...pretty much controled every part of our computer world. Can he still be getting into our computers? If so, how can I prove it and stop it?

looking for a web based remote access solution. I found one not long ago, but have now forgotten what is was. You send an email with a link and the other party clicks on it and then you can access the other computer. It was free or almost free. anyone know what i am thinking of?
Web based? You are going to have to be more specific as all of them use the internet. If you want a web browser based one you can use UltraVNC using it's client or a web browser on a different port.
does anyone know about the remote access and can they tell me how i can know for sure if someone has remote access to my computer or is viewing my emails and what i am doing online?
See this tutorial: Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) - Network - Windows 7 Forums
That is for Windows 7, but Vista is the same.
Unless you have that enabled, nobody can log in remotely using built-in tools. If it is enabled, they still need your username and password to get past your logon screen. That is why it is a good idea to have a password.
I have a desktop running XP Pro at home with a broadband internet connection, this is my only ISP, the broadband connection Adelphia.
I would like to use my laptop, which is running XP Home, from work to connect to my desktop at home useing a dial up modem.
so I may surf the internet from work.
Can I do this if my ISP doesnt support dialup modem connections? If I can will you please advise me on the way to set it up. Should I use Netmeeting? I want to try and avoid any 3rd party applications if I can. TIA John
I think you'd be MUCH happier with the results of just obtaining a cheap ISP to dial directly. For instance, www.access4free.com is a maximum of $10/mo for unlimited Internet access, and in months you use 10 hours or less, it is free! Due to the design of v.90/v.92 modems, the absolute maximum speed connection you'll get between two stand-alone modems is 33kbits, so surfing directly to a dial-up ISP will also be significantly faster.

I believe someone has remote access to my computer. What are ways for someone to access remotely if they only have your IP address? Nothing would have been downloaded except my computer always seems to do a mini dump where is says the computer shut down unexpectedly. Once this happens I believe somehow someone has access. Is there a way I can prevent being accessed remotely? I am wired. Also one other thing that leads me to believe someone has a different type of remore access is, when I am reading a page all of a sudden the hour glass will appear as if there is something going on in the background some processing that I am not aware of. It is strange to me that the hour glass will just appear. I am thinking when this happens someone can somehow take a screen shot of my computer. Is this possible? Why would the hour glass just all of a sudden appear and you're not even turning a page.
There are 2 ways of remote access that Windows has built in. One is Remote Assistance, you have to send out an invitation file to someone first, then he can connect in and control your keyboard and mouse. It is meant for technical support. The second one is Remote Desktop; only the Win XP Professional / Vista Business / Win 7 Professional versions and up have this feature. It is meant for situations like when you want to connect to the office computer from home.
There are also other system administration remote access products from 3rd parties, like PC Anywhere, VNC and others.
Yes, there is a kind of hacking tool called screen scrapers that can read you screen.
The best way to stop most remote access is to use firewalls. There should be one software firewall on the PC, and a router firewall. I think I have seen ~$50 routers that has Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewalls from Linksys. SPI is better. This protects you from inbound attacks/connections. Then the software firewall on the PC warns and allows you to stop unknown programs calling outbound. ( malware phone home )
When you suspect remote access, start Task Manager and look for unfamiliar processes. But this works only if you know what is normally running on your PC.
You should also run msconfig and check what programs are on the startup tab. Those listed there automatically start when you login. All of those listed there you should already know about, eg antivirus or msn messenger. Thoroughly verify that a... Read more

Is it possible for a hacker to have hacked my Wireless connection and established a remote access of my system without me having granted the permissions or having set it up to do so of my own accord?

I have a new Laptop (windows 7 home premium) that I run through a router to access the internet and I want to remote my Desktop PC (Windows XP). I would like to do it the easiest way possible.

A computer guy friend paid for me to have Malwarebytes (the paid version) on my computer. Awhile later, he fixed my computer. It wouldn't even turn on. He was a huge help. But he decided to end our friendship. One night the mouse had a life of its own: just for 15? secs., but after that my Malwarebytes wasn't working, and I had no protection. It was later I learned to turn off remote access. Remote access could have been open due to me calling a company who did their job via remote acce.ss.
When he fixed my computer, at one point he used a USB to get email working as it was easier than a disc. He showed me it ( to prove he wasn't taking stuff off my computer) and told me it had a program on it he was using for my computer.
I never noticed anything until the night it seemed there was another mouse arrow moving on my computer. My questions:
1) do you think he had remote access?
2) if so, how much of what I did on my computer could he see?
3) if so, could he see the things I internet searched?

Hey guys could any1 post a remote acess tool and also, if i were to go into my friends computer that had a virus in it would it transfer it from his comp to mine by me using this remote access?
I think it would have to depend on the type of virus. There are ones that effect remote access. But since you are technically not putting anything on your hard drive when working on his computer with remote access I would not be to worried about. But you might want to ask some of the guys in the security section also. I posted a link below from microsoft about a remote access trojan you might want to check out.

Please let me know if there is any thing there that looks evil.Thanks,WendyLogfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 10:22:13 PM, on 12/19/2007Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\csrss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\ZoneLabs\vsmon.exeC:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 2007\aawservice.exeC:\Program Files\Alwil Soft...

I need some help using a remote access program (open to new programs, too). My friend who lives across the country's laptop needs help, and as it's easier for me to take control and just get everything done, I need some help with using a remote access program... It seems like TeamViewer lags out, since she can see what I open, but 10 minutes later, I still can't see firefox...
Odds are not in your favor here, if TeamViewer is timing out then more than likely any or all of the remote control tools will timeout.
If the user on the laptop dies not need to see what you are doing, you could try a microsoft direct connection, and then try to repair the laptops issue.
Do this by: Clicking Start, Run, type in MSTSC and click ok. Then whe prompted for a computer name, you will need to know the IP address of the laptop, and a user name and password. Hope this helps!
