<_< [B][SIZE=7]I am just learning about my computer and am wondering if remote assistance can be an access for other folks who are on my network? It is a home network but I still don't want someone tracking my keystrokes or spying on me! If I disable it what will happen if I get my isp access from a different computer on this network?

How would I know if someone was hacking my computer from home? I am in the middle of splitting up with my partner & he has been getting on my puter when I am not home and recently added a new network; he didn't think I'd find it on my desktop & tried to pass it off when I questioned him about it.

Neither computer is used for business and he has several other computers connected to this network. He is a techie & used to install commercial puter units & teach staff to use them and also has a linux users group if that helps any.

Sorry so long & wordy!
thanks

Hi
welcome to geekstogo
what I would more be looking for is to see if your system is setup to share files on the network you can ckick this from the desktop icon my network places then click on view workgroup computers. if he really knows computer there is programs out there that he could install to your system to spy on you that you would not know that are running.

I didn't find anything in network and the only files we are currently sharing are only photos, etc.. He can get on my puter and has his name password protected but I am the administrator so I thought i could just delete his password the next time i have to leave home overnight.

When I checked out deleting password it said files would be lost---I would like to read what files he has on his account on this machine, is there any way I can do that if I delete his password?

Is there any sort of debugging I can do to search for tracking?
thank you very much Tazz1964!! <_<

I would be mostly concerned about keylogging software, or a remote access program like PC Anywhere. Post a hijack this log and we can look for them.

Unfortunatey, if he has physical access to your computer and is a knowledable Linux user, it going to be very difficult if not impossible to hide much from him.

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Hope I have done everything correctly---I didn't see a "reply" button on my old post, only a reply to topic. Here are the results--didn't see anything in any file named msconfig...maybe I searched wrong! Anyway here is the log:

Hi again OldNews

Good News :D --I don't see any signs of tracking, logging, or remote access software. :D

You do have spyware installed on your computer, but this is the type installed by third party vendors to track your surfing and serve pop-up ads for profit.

1. I'd recommend you open your Control Panel, open add/remove programs and uninstall NewDotNet if found. For more info on spyware see the Spyware Tools link in my signature.

2. Next, run a free program. Ad-aware.

Using Ad-aware: Open Ad-Aware and use the Check for updates now link. Download and accept the latest reference file. When finished click the Start button. When done scanning, the Abort button will change to Next. Click the Next button. Right-click in the Scanning Results window and click "Select all objects". Then click the "Next" button and confirm that you want to delete the selected entries.

When finished, Reboot your computer. Finally, reply to this post with a new HiJackThis log so we can look for any nasties that may have been missed. <_<

You can uninstall it by going to start->control panel then clicking on add/remove programs. scroll down and look for newdotnet and remove it.

I did a search for the NewDotNet cuz it just isn't showing up in add/remove...is it possible that he is hiding it in a folder under his login on this puter?

Anyway, I found it when I did a search, it says, newdotnet6_22.dll C:\Program Files\NewDotNet---search of C shows, 220 KB Application Extension and the date & time---on NewDotNet it is listed on C:\Program Files and I found it with no problem but it still doesn't show up on add/remove.

We had Charter Cable dsl added recently but I'm not sure of the date but will check; is it possible that this file has something to do with that installalation?

Just restart Hijack This and clean up these few remaining entries:

In Ad-aware you can click on the "Open quarantine-list" link. Then just right click anywhere in the list windows and select delete all.
