can i prevent this?
That is a good question. I don't know to much about direct access to a computer because networking is not my thing, but yes it can be Prevented.
Know what sites you are visiting. Make sure you do not give out any information unless you the know the website: For example....www.Harrisbank.com. That is a banking website for one of my towns in illinois.
Also make sure your PC is protected with the latest Virus definitions. Make sure you have internet secuirty such as suits like ZoneAlarm, Norton *not the best*..
Not sure if i am right, but if i am I hope this helped you

thanks for the replies. but actually im not talking about identity theft. Im talking about something a bit different. umm, for example, if someone i knew was curious what i was doing online, would they able to? If they didnt have direct access to my pc, but maybe new my ip address? Also, i heard that its possible to track keystrokes, can this be done from a remote location? i just want to make sure its not possible. im not a hacker or anything trying to figure out how to do this, just want to make sure i dont have to worry about this. also, i dont know if any of you are familiar with the facebook. its is a social networking site like myspace, except it is restricted to college students. Facebook doesnt have a feature for tracking who has been looking at your profile. are there any programs out there that do this? is it possible to modify code or anything? once again, i dont want to know how to do theses things, just want to make sure no one is doing this/using such things against me...
