I'm using a hand me down HP pavilion 512n Desktop. I know that it used to be part of a home business network.
I also know, from several of the programs that are installed on it, that it was used to do a lot of gaming, and online gambling.
Now as it is no longer a part of that network I want to know what I should do to be sure that it isn't still being accessed by any of its previous owners, be it for business or pleasure.
I have a habit of running AFT at least every couple of days. When I ran it today it reported getting rid of 900,000 temp files, which gives me to wonder if one of the other owners might have something on the hard drive that allows then to access this machine.
I have another thread going in the malware forum because of some of the issues that I've been having.
Any information on locking down this box so that I know I'm the only one to the front and back doors will be greatly appreciated.
